Born with a strong passion for photography Rino Giardiello and other professionals, Nadir Magazine is published timidly network the first time back in 1996 in a free space on Geocities – www.geocities.com/Paris/Rue/3703 – with ‘intention to make available to all free of charge the various experiences and knowledge to contribute to the dissemination of photographic culture, and in 1997 becomes “Nadir Magazine” with the first domain “official” and this is the year that will have used as ” official birth year “even though they may boast of one more year.
The name “Nadir” explains the spirit behind the magazine: the nadir is the opposite of the zenith, or the “high point”, as it is currently understood.
What does this mean?
It means that the magazine does not want to have the tones and the presumption of one who knows everything or salt in a chair, and that whoever carries it feels first and foremost an “amateur”, a lover of Photography: nothing more or less incomprehensible speeches and by the learned tone put there just to look good, no claim to intellectualism, but only love for photography in all its forms, without barriers and prejudices.
Because Nadir is an online magazine, it is available only on the Internet and all published material – the enormous archive of Nadir developed over the years – stay online to readers (so attentive to the publication dates because the older articles are not updated, just as if they were printed on paper!).
Nadir of addressing the photograph 360 degrees: you can find the cameras tests, lenses and films, photographic theory articles, of shooting technique, large-format, digital, columns dedicated to professional and legal aspects of photography, reviews exhibitions, books and contests. Not missing, finally, a widely read section of free advertisements for the sale of material used.
Nadir is a pleasant and inspiring reading for anyone interested in photography thanks to the simple, conversational language that characterizes it, without it the rigor and depth of content is sacrificed: after all, if “IlSole24Ore” awarded him in 1998 as best Italian site Arts & Culture – unique photography site to receive this award – and several thousand readers consult it every day, there must be a reason.
