The artist’s first ever collector’s edition book, 'The Never-Ending Summer', features behind the scenes photography and exclusive memoirs from his closest family, as well as anecdotes from models and muses he has worked with including Pamela Anderson and Alessandra Ambrosio.
Every copy of the book is presented in a unique box made from antique pine over a century old and has been hand embellished with mixed media, before being sealed with Mazzucco’s signature high gloss resin finish. The individual boxes comprise one of 10 photographs captured and signed by the artist, making them unique collectables.
One of the world’s most influential and talented fashion photographers, Mazzucco is recognised for his singular eye and captivating aesthetic. He has created iconic imagery for the likes of Victoria’s Secret, Ralph Lauren, Guess Jeans and L’Oréal.
The artist’s work has appeared in L’Official, French & Italian Vogue, L’Uomo Vogue, Marie Claire, Playboy and Vanity Fair, featuring not only his editorial fashion photography but celebrity portraiture of notable actors, including Benicio Del Toro, Matt Damon, Susan Sarandon and Elizabeth Banks.
Mazzucco’s arrival onto the art scene was met with widespread critical acclaim, with Damien Hirst purchasing one of his collections for over $750,000. Following the success of his debut collection, Mazzucco has gone on to enjoy exhibitions in esteemed galleries all over the world.
Raphael Mazzucco said:
The process of working alongside the team at Castle Fine Art on this project has been awesome. It’s prompted me to recollect some of my very happiest times, a lot of career-defining moments and quite a few memories even I wouldn’t believe to be true if they hadn’t happened to me!
“It’s also been an exercise in bringing together so many people that I love and respect. For that reason alone, this book is very special and dear to my heart.”
Nicola Duffy, gallery manager for Castle Fine Art, Glasgow, said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming Raphael to the gallery to celebrate his fascinating career as an accomplished fashion photographer and artist.
“Our guests will be some of the first to view his new book, which gives a rare insight into the creative processes of one of contemporary art’s most compelling and charismatic creators.”
