Exquisitely shiny!

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

 The result is this stunning collection of more than 100 photographs; transforming models, dancers, gymnasts and aerialists into metallic statues.

The images depict new beings that became almost liquid like under the studio lights.

Coating athletic models with metallic glow paint, these series highlight the intrinsic beauty of powerful yet gracious and aerial human body.

His photographs endow the human form with both the solidity of sculpture and the vivid energy of dance.
