CULO: THE WORLD IS NO LONGER FLAT.
Raphael partnered up with music mogul Jimmy Iovine of Interscope Records to shoot an anthology of celebrity portraiture. A collection of stunning, provocative images that celebrate the irresistable beauty of women blessed with real curves and, in particular, with magnificent "culo" (the Italian and Spanish word for ""derriere".
Culo is an art, fashion, and pop-culture movement that defies all national, cultural, and linguistic boundaries. No matter if you were raised to call it derriere, tush, rear end, or booty, Culo is the new epicenter of female sexuality, desire, and empowerment.
