PRIVATE 36 | AFRIKA
Next to exogenous images of ourselves, which are relayed by media and advertising and threaten to surround and close us in archetypes, there are endogenous images waiting to burst out and express what Delacroix calls the “chaotic world of sensations”. […> Mastering this split image is the role which photographers of African origin have assigned themselves, sometimes against their better judgement, in order to avoid misunderstandings. (Simon Njami)

PRIVATE 37 | an Ecological Question
The destruction of our environment – albeit caused by natural disasters – involves parties (communities, governments or industrial players) and is often the result of a multiplicity of factors: human negligence, inadequate planning, criminal abuse of our resources, natural causes.
This issue of PRIVATE offers its readers a selection of photographs that touches onto the many facets of the environment. (Lucy Conticello)

PRIVATE 45 | DEVELOPMENT. An Ecological Question
An urgent message is carried through these images: that environmental degradation is not someone else’s problem. This is our shared Earth and it is our collective responsibility to protect it. It is not too late, but we must act now to change our relationship with nature from one of overexploitation and greed to one of respect and preservation. Only then can we save our planet – and ultimately ourselves. (Jo Kuper)

PRIVATE 47 | ISRAEL
Documenters in Israel and Palestine: Arabs, Jews and foreign photographers, participate in an active search for genuine circumstances of manifestations of the psychic, body and territory that represent a local third space condition. The means of communication embody these Meta Space qualities by dissolving territorial partitions and borders. World wide digital distribution, shared news agencies assignments and documentary stories assimilate current documentation capability with Meta local actuality. (Ami Steinitz)

PRIVATE 56 | School
Teaching is sharing in action. Beyond the clarity, the formal beauty of many of these pictures, in such different places and contexts, we feel relieved to be looking and observing this gesture. We are reminded that knowledge is hope no matter where we find ourselves. The only true hope. But beware, dear readers, demanding that we are. […] Some of these images underline this clearly, or by implication. Schools are always the first victims of conflict. No, we are not fooled. But with this issue of PRIVATE we would like to celebrate these little moments of grace. (Pierre-François Moreau)
