CYBELEA project that has been many, many years in the making for photographer, Guido Argentini, has come to blossom as his latest book, Argentum. The project was sparked in 1995 when Argentini made his very first photograph of a silver coated model while working on establishing new and unique ways to create studio portraits. Since then, Argentini has been masterfully assembling a collection of images that feature his innovative take on nude photography. Argentum is 100 of of the photographers favorite images from the collection.

Working with dancers, gymnasts, and aerialists to serve as the models for Argentum, Argentini painted his muses in metallic silver paint and photographed them in front of a white background. The results are incredible as you’ll witness below. 

The fluid form of the human body is recast in a metallic coat, juxtaposing the flexible mobility of women with the rigid elements of metal to create a fascinating series of photos. “

To help tell the story of how Argentum evolved, Argentini also went through the effort of putting together a documentary of the project. Take a look at the trailer, then scroll down to feast your eyes on a sampling of images from the book.

      Sir, this is nothing like GOLDfinger. This is silver. And, this being nude models and black and white, automatically becomes art. Your ignorance, Sir, is beyond belief.
