Guido Argentini (Italy) – renowned photographer is most recognized for his breathtaking series titled SILVEREYE. Was born in Florence, Italy and 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. To date, his work can be found in some of the world’s leading magazines.
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.
“REFLECTIONS” was published in 2007, and includes 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” published in 2010 began exploring different levels and nuances of the female nature.
“ARGENTUM” published in 2013 is the final collection of Guido Argentini’s silver photographs.
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.
