Italian photographic artist Giorgio di Noto (b. 1980) takes a journey into the dark side of the web for his fascinating new body of work, The Iceberg. Few know that the worldwide web we use daily represents only a small percentage of what is available on the Internet. Known as the “darknet,” the deep web is made up of an encrypted and constantly evolving anonymous network, a lawless no-man’s land where anything goes and nothing is traceable, and where illicit online businesses proliferate. Some items are so controversial that only the use of an ultraviolet light applied to the computer screen reveals their content. In di Noto’s provocative publication, this controversial world is brought to light in over 70 images lifted from assorted illegal websites. In keeping with the surreptitious nature of the content, select images are printed with invisible ink requiring the use of an ultraviolet light to be viewed. Di Noto, currently studying philosophy at La Sapienza in Rome, brings the viewer face-to-face with the veiled realities we face in today’s world.
