Photographer’s Limited Editions is offering photographer Guido Argentini’s stunning and sexy silver series c-prints (say that ten times fast) from his collectible book and series, SILVEREYE. The six available images shown below are limited to 3 editions each, measure a large 47″ x 47″ and cost approximately $9,000.00 USD a piece.
About the photographer:
Born in Florence, Italy Guido Argentini studied Medicine for three years at the university of Florence before turning to photography as a career. At 23 he decided to turn his passion into a profession and started to shoot fashion and beauty. Since 1990 he has lived in the USA, in Los Angeles.
His work has been published by some of the leading magazines in the world such as “Marie Claire”, “Men’sHealth”, “Panorama”, “Playboy”, “Vogue”, “Max”, “Maxim” and many others.
In 2003, Guido Argentini’s first book, shown above,“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, Mr. 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.
His latest book, “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.
