Marc Krüger: Animato

Marc Krüger: Animato

Animato evokes movement, flow, especially in the city, inert mineral structure contrasting with the organic and alive side of men crossing from side to side, like an arrow.

Guido Argentini: Argentum

Color and texture radically influence how we perceive shapes. While looking for an innovative approach on a 1995 Miami photo shoot, photographic master Guido Argentini was moved to coat a model in silver makeup. The result was as beautiful as it was intriguing– the subtly grayish tones highlighted angles and surfaces in a way that was other-worldly. Inspired by the…
