As a garment, its greatest traits seem rather unenviable – simplicity, durability, and a decent fit on the butt – but with merely those modest qualities, the humble blue jean rose from working-class roots to an unshakable presence in modern fashion – and verifiable sex appeal. From Africa to Canada, New York to L.A., Nothing Butt chronicles a photographer’s infatuation with women in jeans, and the world’s infatuation with denim itself. To the worn-out pairs that cover bums on the street to high-end designer denim, the jean-clad butt is ever-present, and often overlooked in its very familiarity. For seven years, photographer Troy Paul chronicled and captured, in journalistic style, Nothing Butt.
Since his mother first handed him a Kodak disk camera at the age of eight, Brooklyn-based photographer Troy Paul has been fascinated with the effects of light. His more than decade-long career spans work in fashion, music and portraiture. Nothing Butt is his first book of photojournalism. More Later.... This is the intro to the larger version of the same book, I am planning to release that version in 2009. The larger version should have 250 to 300 butts from all over the world..... Thanks for stopping by I hope you enjoy this book.
