Publisher's Description
The sculpture of Michelangelo, Rodin, and Brancusi, serve as the inspiration for Guido Argentini's masterly photographs of the female nude. Published together for the first time in this breathtaking collection taken over a period of seventeen years, Argentini's astute focus on the female form achieves the transformation of bodies into objects of art. We are presented with two distinct series of spectacular photos. The first is shot in locations around the world in a way that fuses the body with the landscape while in the second, dancers and gymnasts are photographed in contorted positions in the studio. Covered with a veil of oil or a coat of metallic paint and exquisitely lit, the bodies leap off the page with an astounding three dimensionality.
