Photographer Spotlight: Guido Argentini
Guido Argentini is an Italian born fine art photographer (that’s a rather loose categorization, by the way) known mostly for his studies of women. You’ve probably seen his “Silver” series making its way around the internet lately, so aside from that I thought we’d try to highlight some of his other works as well. NSFW gallery after the jump.

Photographer Spotlight: Tony Kelly
Tony Kelly is a Dublin born photographer, predominately now working in fashion.
Tony’s carrer started at Independent Newspaper Group and spent his formative years covering people and places that most of us never want to see. Such as the civil war in Rwanda and the war in Afghanistan. After eight years of covering conflict, Tony moved his focus to fashion.
Quick Look: Madame Peripetie
Love the work of fashion and surrealist photographer Madame Peripetie (real name Sylwana Zybura).
As a side note, we are going to start doing a few of these “Quick Looks” to highlight more, possibly lesser known, artists and photographers. They will be shorter (limited to one or two images) than our full-on Artist and Photographer Spotlights, but they should allow us a chance to highlight a greater number of emerging artists.
Photographer Spotlight: Daidō Moriyama
After posting about Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki, I felt the need to spotlight my all time favorite Japanese photographer, Daidō Moriyama. Moriyama’s work primarily focuses on the breakdown of traditional cultural values in post-war Japan. His work has held a haunting presence in my life ever since I first stumbled upon him many years ago.
