made headlines, thanks to its Sean “Diddy” Combs involvement, but
really Raphael Mazzucco’s photos should get all the attention. The word
“culo” is meant to reflect an “art, fashion, and pop-culture movement
that defies all national, cultural, and linguistic boundaries.” No
matter where you’re from, though, the bottom line is, it’s all about the
butt, which Mazzucco is deeming the new “epicenter of female sexuality,
desire, and empowerment.” Culo by Mazzucco ($41, Atria Books)
pays tribute to ladies derrières with more than 200 photographs and
artworks created on location around the world, a diverse group of
African, Latina, Euro, and Asian women.
