Corridor8, a new international annual contemporary visual art and writing magazine, that started in 2009.

Private is an international review of photography and writing. This itinerant review has been offering its poetic and photographic journey since 1992. Private’s purpose is to offer a space for photographic creation and poetic or narrative writing. Each issue is themed. As unique and special the scenes are that the photographers for this issue have chosen to focus on, the similarities (what we have in common, what we share) that can be found around the globe are striking.
