Harry Peccinotti (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 typically features close up shots of the female form and the face in particular and is sensual. The images are suggestive, for example, making a fetish of lips and smoking but not overtly pornographic.
