About Debbie Zullo
Debbie lives in comparative privacy in Los Angeles, where her frame can soak up the sun's golden rays and her spirit can run free. Debbie has strong views on anything that affects her life, including women's liberations.
She enjoys her career as a fashion model. Her Penthouse debut, however, marks the first time she's posed au natural.
"Men should be strong, but that doesn't mean their women should be weak. I don't want to compete with a man; I want to love and comfort him." Debbie also has definite ideas on what she wants that man to be. "I like my man to be handsome in a sexy, European kind of way, strong on the outside with a little-boy vulnerability. And his eyes are very important. You can read a man's soul through his eyes."
About Bob Guccione
In 1965, Bob Guccione, a struggling artist with an entrepreneurial imagination, started a magazine called Penthouse. Due to his lack of resources, Guccione personally photographed most of the models for the magazine's early issues. He spent long hours, and sometimes, several days, to complete a photo shoot. Although he had no professional training, Guccione applied his knowledge of painting to his photography, establishing the diffused, soft focus look that would become one of the trademarks of the magazine's pictorials. These images offered more sexually explicit content than other gentleman's magazines of the era, establishing Penthouse as a well known name amongst its competitors.
Although Bob Guccione's formal training amounts to a one-month stint at the Art Students League, his entire life has revolved around the art world since the age of 5, when his aunt gave him a book of impressionist reproduction. As a young man living in Europe and North Africa, he furthered his artistic pursuits by painting and sketching for over 20 years. His sense of light, form, and movement can be attributed to the past 30 years he has spent behind the camera lens. Finally his lifelong acquisition of old-master, impressionist and post-impressionist works has greatly influenced his use of inert color. Although he is known primarily as a businessman, and owner of GMI and its 17 publications, he states that "my greatest passion has always been art."
