Harry Peccanotti (also known as Harri Peccinotti) is a photographer, known for his erotic work, most famously the Pirelli Calendar in 1968 and 1969. He was born in the 1930s and continues to be an influential figure in art and fashion photography.
His work as art director of the UK fashion Nova is widely considered as influential for its graphic design as well as photography. His life’s work is celebrated in the retrospective book “HP” by Harri Peccinotti.
His work typically features close up shots of the female form and the face in particular and is sensual. The images and suggestive, for example, making a fetish of lips and smoking but is not overtly pornographic.
A good example of his style during the 1970s are his book covers for Penguin, including a series of Iris Murdoch novels which features unusually cropped, striking pictures of women models with make up in vivid colours. More recent work includes a fashion shoot for L’Officiel magazine.
