“Giuila in a zen position”

Guido Argentini  (Born: 1966 in Florence, Italy. Currently lives and works in Los Angeles, US).

Argentini studied medicin for three years, but chosed to shoot fashion in stead at the age of 23. His works has been been published by some of the leading world wide magazines as “MarieClaire” , “Men’s Healt”, “Maxim”, “Vogue”, “Playboy” and others.

The artist

The artist also has a great passion for sculpture and dance, which he expressed throug his first book “SILVEREYE”, published in 2003.  Here, Argentino presented  a sublime series of studio and landscape nudes. Later, in 2005, he published his second book “PRIVATE ROOMS” , a result of ten years photograps. The artist  invites us into a universe of feminisme through a meeting with eroticism and beauty, where the photographs are all intimate taken in in ancient villas, closed rooms, and elegant five stars locations. But it is first in 2007, when he released his third book “REFLECTIONS”  that he takes the female study to a nother level. The book contains photograhps of women looking at themself in the mirror- a study of how they studie themself.
