ISSUE 02 - BEAUTY STEREOTYPES AND DIVERSITY
“We need a new language, not only an oral but also a visual one, to tell about the contemporary world, which is infinite, complicated and rich in its growing diversity... Society's limits consist in both standardizing beauty, and making it “unique”, in the sense of there being only one of a kind. However, the diversity of nature and the world surrounding us continually contradicts this: there exist many kinds of beauty, each one unique in its own way and with its many nuances. Training our eyes and our mind needs to become the main exercise in order to mingle ourselves with the beauty of the world.”
Bilingual and rich in the use of large photographic apparatus, the second issue of Personne saw Giammarco Marasco with Adriano Cisani as both photographer and guest editor, conducting interviews with Massimo Bottura, Alessia Glaviano, Ghali, and rare images selected by Francesca Marani as photo editor among the works of Charles Fréger, Deo Suveera, Kent Andreasen, Lois Cohen & Indiana Roma Voss, Snezhana Vonn Büdingen, Sam Gregg, Lucie Khahoutian, Reatile Moalusi, Piero Percoco, Joe Pettet Smith.
