Born Alia, Italy in 1947
The world of fashion, advertising and film from the 1980’s to the present come together in the celebrity images of Antonio Guccione. In a society that believes in exasperated ostentation, fashion photographer Antonio Guccione 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 seem 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 represent or r-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 a Sarah Jessica Parker, Richard Gere, Anthony Quinn, Giorgio Armani, Asia Argento, Dolce and Gabbana, Elle Macpherson, Umberto, Federico Fellini, Dizzy Gillespie, Iman, Yasmin Le Bon, Gianni Versace, Kim Rea, Carol Alt, Marinda, Pia Klover, to name a few.
Antonio Guccione is a fashion photographer and has worked on advertising campaigns for Prada, Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent.
He is contributing photographer to “Vanity Fair.”
