In this clip we view a wonderful series of images by Guido Argentini from his “Silvereye” series.

In addition to the previous works of Silvereye Argentini has also made a book titled Shades of a Woman. A closer look at this book here:

Argentini reminds me of photographer Ruth Bernhard. Both artist’s produce very interesting images concentrating not on face and color of the female form, but rather the curves  of the figure and sometimes even the more interesting cast shadows of the female form. Argentini has brought new life to the classic ideas of how to shoot the female form.
