  • A daring and innovative study of the human body and its range of movement
  • A landmark work that will enrich any photographic library

Color and texture radically influence how we perceive shapes. While looking for an innovative approach at a 1995 Miami photo shoot, photographic master Guido Argentini was moved to coat a model in silver makeup.
The result was as beautiful as it was intriguing—the subtle grayish tones highlighted angles and surfaces in a way that was other-worldly. Inspired by the results, Argentini created a whole series of silver-hued models.
In so doing, he uncovered a fresh perspective for nude photography. Evoking the luminous polished planes 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.
