Colour and texture radically influence how we perceive shapes. Whilst searching for an innovative approach on a 1995 Miami photo shoot, photographic master Guido Argentini was moved to coat a model in silver makeup. The end result was as beautiful because it was intriguing – the subtle grayish tones highlighted angles and surfaces inside 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 pictures endow the human body with both the solidity of sculpture and the clear energy of dance.
