Guido Argentini was born in Florence, Italy. He studied Medicine for three years at the University of Florence. At age 23 he decided to turn his passion for photography into a profession and started to shoot fashion and beauty.
In 2003, Guido Argentini’s first book, “Silvereye”, presented an exquisite series of nudes shot in studio. Photographed in black and white, the result is a sensual and majestic veneration of the woman’s body. Argentini truly transforms living subjects into sculptural pieces. Shot in the intimacy of closed rooms, ancient villas, modern apartments, or cheap hotels these settings invite the viewer to take a glimpse into a unique feminine universe.
His work has been published by some of the leading magazines of the world.
Since 1990, Guido Argentini has been living and working in Los Angeles.
