Diddy and Interscope chairman Jimmy Iovine have collaborated with fashion photographer and visual artist Raphael Mazzucco for a book featuring the female backside. Diddy and Jimmy served as executive editors. Derived from the Italian word “culo,” meaning buttocks, CULO by Mazzucco is a collection of photographs captured into one coffee table book and will be available in stores and as an e-book on November 22.
According to the press release:
Revered for his ability to capture diverse beauty and bring it to the forefront of mainstream popular culture, photographer Mazzucco was commissioned to travel the world, shooting stunning, sought after women. The result is a 248-page portfolio of phenomenal color photographs and art pieces tastefully assembled, to be displayed on every coffee table, providing a guaranteed topic of conversation.
“Raphael is a true artist,” says Diddy. “He relies on instinct- capturing a raw, natural sense of beauty through his lens in CULO by Mazzucco that celebrates the female form. His work is passionate and powerful.”
The book will retail for $65.
