About Danielle Deneux
Danielle Deneux is quite pleased with her pretty face and remarkable 37-25-36-inch assets. "The thing I'm proudest of is my pride. I left home at the age of 14 rather than take orders from my stepfather. A few years later I caught my boyfriend cheating on me, and I walked out and never once looked back-even when he begged me to reconsider." says Danielle. Since working her way through the University of Miami, Danielle has pursued a dual career as a professional accountant and a model. "In both cases I'm convinced that my success isn't based on my looks or intelligence so much as on my personality and the fact that I'm easy to work with." Her favorite adventure to date was "the night I made love right in the display window of a waterbed store. Whenever a car would pull up to the curb outside, we'd stop our tussling around under the covers and pretend that we were mannequins," she explains, grinning at the memory. Her less adventurous hobbies include roller skating and playing tennis with her male roommate.
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."
