Guccione, Antonio - Fashion and Faces (New in plastic!)
In a society that believes in exasperated ostentation, fashion photographer Antonio Guccione (Italian, born 1947) knows how to discover and see its beauty. His is not simple photography, on the contrary, it is so sophisticated in the balance of its elements that it seems to be a spontaneous event, a natural happening that takes place before the lens. Guccione has clearly embraced the important question underlying photographic representation: whether that which is represented agrees or disagrees with the reality from which it set out. In portraits, this matter usually deals with a pleasurable and perverse ambivalence: to understand whether the photographic face represents or re-presents the face that has been put in pose. It is from this viewpoint that Guccione, like a wanderer, takes on and pursues a curious and suggestive photographic itinerary of celebrities such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Richard Gere, Anthony Quinn, Giorgio Armani, Asia Argento, Dolce and Gabbana, Elle McPhereson, Umberto Eco, Federico Fellini, Dizzy Gillespie, Iman, Yasmin Le Bon and Gianni Versace, to name a few.
