About The Artwork

From the book "ARGENTUM": In 1995, photographic master Guido Argentini was moved to coat a model in silver makeup. The shiny silver paint transformed the models: dancers, gymnasts and aerialists into metallic statues, into new beings that became almost liquid like under the studio lights. Evoking the luminous polished planes of the work of Brancusi and the verve of Degas’ ballet sketches, these photographs endow the human body with both the solidity of sculpture and the vivid energy of dance. Using geometrical props Guido Argentini created a contrast between the human body and the archetypal forms of geometry: triangles, circles and squares. The final result of many years of work is this book: Argentum. A collection of more than 100 stunning photographs. Argentum is a book but is also a movie, a documentary that reveals The concepts that are behind the making of this book: Argentini’s esthetic of the human form and the skills of the athletes that posed for these photographs.

GUIDO ARGENTINI was born in Florence, Italy. He studied Medicine for three years at the university of Florence. At 23 he decided to turn his passion for photography into a profession and started to shoot fashion and beauty. Since1990 he lives in the USA, in Los Angeles . His work has been published by some of the leading magazines in the world. In 2003, Guido Argentini's first book, SILVEREYE, presented an exquisite series of studio and landscape nudes. That work was a reflection of the artist's great personal passion for sculpture and dance. In his second book, PRIVATE ROOMS, 2005, Guido Argentini offers an entirely different type of personal journey, one where eroticism and beauty are clearly inseparable. Within these pages, we are invited to take a glimpse into a unique "˜feminine universe'. This second book is the result of ten years of photographs, all taken in the intimacy of closed rooms, ancient villas, modern apartments, many hotels, from the most elegant five-star locations enriched with luxurious velvets and four-posted beds to the most squalid insignificant hourly-rate motels furnished with cheap plastic chairs and worn-out wallpaper. A universe where all these rooms become the theaters of the artist's self-directed voyeuristic fantasies. "REFLECTIONS" was published in 2007, a vast collection of photographs of women looking at themselves in mirrors: a sort of unconscious research about the woman who studies herself, falls in love, and gets lost in her own image. "SHADES OF A WOMAN" was published in 2010. The book is divided in 6 chapters, two in Black and white and four in color. The photographs were taken indoor and outdoor all over the world, in Italy, USA, Thailand, Cuba, and many other countries; in the desert of California, in abandoned houses in palaces and hotels.
