PRIVATE 56 | School

Good news, it infuses this issue with a sense of joy, and with an aspect of carefree childhood seized in flight. There is a feeling of solemnity, but a tender solemnity. An innocence that confronts the world, its difficulties and the trials of study, but it is amusing, happy, and touching.

PRIVATE 55 | Rurality Now

The last global farmers shelter in rifts and unreachable ravines enveloped in loneliness huddle on the margins and scraps of earth still damp from warm, organic contact and human touch. Precarious land that is alive because of extreme poverty.

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.

PRIVATE 37, an Ecological Question

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 […]

PRIVATE 35 | METROPOLIS

When I look at the twenty photographers which make up this Metropolis edition of PRIVATE, it’s not what makes the cities different from each other that strikes me, in fact I’d say that these big cities are very similar to each other, not in their detail, faces, bodies and scenes, but in the variety of […]

PRIVATE 32 | NIGHT

For those born before television, before sleep became one amongst many options, night was travelled through with caution. Because it was a place where all of the world’s negativity lurked. Night clouded reason and at nightfall the legends of the non-living once again became real, exacting a personal tribute of blood and death. Darkness was […]

PRIVATE 28 | an Ethical Question

The selected images for this issue of PRIVATE, with their individual style, at times assisted by visual references, demonstrate a common appreciation of the reportage as a genre. They all possess a sincere – and frankly infrequent – ethical sense.

PRIVATE 23 | Body Fusion Eroticism Sensuality

Whenever a photograph shows more of the subject’s skin than it is usual, a problem of classification inevitably arises: are we dealing with a nude photograph (artistic or not), an erotic photograph or a pornographic photograph?

PRIVATE 17 | No-Fashion

All of the photos which compose this number of ‘Private’ represent denial or an attempt at denial of fashion. […] Here we find ourselves already in ambiguous territory where the body and whatever covers it is not just commercial merchandise, or at least not entirely.

PRIVATE 14 | Diaries & Confessions

Photographic diaries and autobiographical memories, revealing themselves as attempts to confer upon the person a form of identity, capable of going beyond actual experiences.

PRIVATE 9 | La strada

A meeting with the street, the physical and mental place of all those whom, being travellers hope to not become imprisoned.

Le foto pubblicate in questo numero di PRIVATE, fanno parte di alcuni dei più significativi lavori in “bianco e nero” eseguiti da autori giovanissimi e presentati agli organizzatori del Premio Fotografico Mario Ziliani. Un’altra giornata di uno “Scrutatore” Le fotografie sono tutte lì, su un lungo tavolo, e si sente subito qualcosa di strano nell’aria. […]
