Buenos Aires and Paris-based photographer Basilio Silva knows how to distinguish himself and his models from the competition judging by this recent work.

Black and white contrasts almost always do well to create striking looks. No two colors or shades can achieve quite the same severity when put together. Couple this with the blue accents, red overtones and various other crafty color combinations and one is approaching Silva's distinct style.

Silva's signature photography together with the suspicious, almost contemptuous expressions worn by the models suggest an air of intrigue and danger. This tense atmosphere creates a dark allure that is a welcome aspect in many fashion shoots. Anyone can stand out by being obscene, or shocking but to distinguish one's self with the poise found in these photographs takes talent.
