Exquisite Photos of Dancers Photographed in Metallic Body Paint will Inspire You

Italian photographer Guido Argentini takes the human form to a whole new level with his photos of painted dancers.

Back in 1995, photographer Guido Argentini was inspired to photograph a model coated in silver body paint . Nearly twenty years and countless shoots later, Argentini has prepared a collection of this work in a new book titled ARGENTUM.

“I always felt that photography was too close to reality. Painting and sculpture allow you to be more abstract when working with the human figure. My love for dance and for sculpture inspired this series of photographs,” says Argentini.
