Lebron James and Maria Sharapova Photo Shoot

Lebron James and Maria Sharapova Photo Shoot
(Are these photos politically correct or will they cause another uproar?)

Tennis ace Maria Sharapova, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Goodwill Ambassador, has invited National Basketball Association star LeBron James to "Team Up Against Poverty" on a new UNDP advertisement to garner support for achieving the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). World-renowned photographer Patrick Demarchelier photographed both stars for this new series of UNDP pro bono advertisements.

The new advertisements – the centerpiece of a campaign revolves around the concept of "Teaming Up Against Poverty" to achieve the MDGs – feature celebrities from the worlds of sports, arts, fashion or business portrayed in teams of two by top professional photographers. Fifty celebrities, including UNDP Goodwill Ambassadors and soccer greats Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane, have agreed to participate in the initiative to promote the MDGs and to undertake specific anti-poverty activities, ranging from supporting educational activities and HIV/AIDS projects to funding water and sanitation initiatives and promoting safe drinking water campaigns.
