Biography

Born in Florence, Italy, Guido Argentini studied Medicine for three years at the university of Florence. At the age of 23, he decided to turn his passion for photography 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. 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 replica orologi 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. 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 vacheron constantin replica 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. “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. “Shades of a Woman” published in 2010. In this new book I began exploring different levels and nuances of the female nature. I feel that I constantly need to find new visions of the world and thus, life and women. This latest project of mine is not my final goal; if ever, I believe this to be a starting point. All I have accomplished so far has been “for the eyes of a woman”.
