With the Lavazza 2017 calendar, made in collaboration with Slow Food with images shot in Southeast Asia by the photographer Denis Rouvre, the three-year project The Earth Defenders comes to an end, after having reached 17 countries and 32 cities, for a voyage of 13,000 km to meet and photograph over 350 Earth Defenders, producing about 10,500 photos in all.

A three-year journey guided by three great masters of photography – Steve McCurry for the calendar in 2015, Joey L. for that of 2016, and Denis Rouvre in 2017.

The calendar We Are What We Live honors some of the Asian Earth Defenders: from coffee growers in Indonesia, Laos and Vietnam, to molasses harvesters in Sri Lanka, red rice farmers in Bali, and wild honey gatherers in India.
