by Italian photographer Guido Argentini. He has been taking stylish photographs of nude women that celebrate the beauty of the female form. For his series ‘Argentum’, he first coats his models in silver paint before shooting them.
It 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. 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 photographs of women and men: dancers, gymnasts and aerialists. 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.
