Specializing in still life photography, Guido Mocafico shoots gorgeous pictures. My favorites–‘Movement,’ a series of the mechanical systems of luxury watches and his most famous ‘Serpent’ series of every single snake species. All Mocafico’s photographs are shot on a black background to accent focus on his subject. Guido works for international magazines such as Numéro, French, American and Men’s Vogue, Big, The Face, Self-Service, and Wallpaper. He has also undertaken numerous advertising campaigns for Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Clinique, Shiseido, and Hermès.
Over the past years, Mocafico has been at work on a personal project related to architecture, and he continues to explore aesthetic and scientific themes in nature.
In 2005 Steidl published his book Venenum in a limited edition of 1200 copies.
