Living with the enemy Donna Ferrato Photography

LIVING WITH THE ENEMY Photographs by Donna Ferrato Introduction by Dr. Ann Jones Aperture; 1991

Ferrato rode over 6,000 hours with police around the country to get some of the photographs in Living With the Enemy. In the introduction to Living With the Enemy, Ferrato writes, “Much of the book was born out of frustration—first, because I felt powerless in the face of the violence I had seen, and second, because for a long time no magazine would publish the pictures. It was only when I received the W. Eugene Smith Award in 1986 that magazine editors began to take the project seriously.” Ferrato felt the problem had been concealed from public view for too long and it was important to show as many aspects of the problem as she could. Some of the names in the book were changed, but all of the photographs and stories are real. Read more for an interview with Donna Ferrato ...

AMORE Federico Motta; 2001
Inside her tender and violent language there is the desire for the recreation of souls and an invitation to free sexuality in order to enjoy sentimental erotic fulfillment. While the photos draw us to a liberal sexuality, they also transmit a message to the heart of the problem: sexuality is our life's motor and has thousands of expressions. However, in order to be totally gratifying, it must be accompanied by tenderness and affection. Donna registers these emotions and reflections in different situations: family life, casual meetings, sexual relationships, private clubs, along the streets of the world, meetings with children and adults, and scenes from everyday life.
