PRIVATE 40 – Crossing Boundaries
Through subjects which are hard, frequently morbid and often far from our everyday concerns, these photographers are taking on the primary role of the artist. They are revealing our deepest contradictions and expressing their dreams and the nightmares which we prefer to forget.

PRIVATE 46 | MENTAL GEOGRAPHY – Galerie VU’
For more than 10 years, Galerie VU’ has been promoting photographers of various ages, nationalities and inspirations. This issue of private magazine, which is dedicated to them, proves it.

PRIVATE 48 | Economic inequalities
The pictures of this issue show economic inequalities as they are today in a way which breaks the stupor of indifference generated by watching antiseptic clean TV programmes of the main news channels. These pictures are a wake-up call, a reminder that we need to look again more closely, become more aware of what is in the real world rather than hide behind our inner screens of routine lives – so boring for the rich, so harmful for those excluded.

PRIVATE 53 | HOPE
Spending time with the photographs displayed here is in many respects a learning experience: Ever heard of guano, and how it is collected? Or, of how cultivating silkworms in a former Armenian village in Turkey might symbolise the legacy of its former inhabitants? Or, that there is a Christian minority in Pakistan?
[…] These photos are meant to educate us. And they will, provided we are willing. (Hans Durrer)
