There are so many things we know nothing about: meetings taking place in the dark, whispered truths being exchanged and gasped at behind closed doors and documents that were locked away only to be forgotten — words that may wither away and disappear completely. Secret stories about all and nothing.

In a time where people’s secrets are revealed and forced upon us wherever we look (even those we don’t wish to know), Livraison III examines what a secret really is. Who carries a secret, and how does it feel to know something nobody else knows?

We asked people we thought might hold the key to the hidden truths of art, life, human nature, and perhaps even the universe, to trust us with their secrets. We wrote to the most secretive and creative personalities like Geoff Mc Fetridge, Michelle Cortez, Rem Koolhas, Kathryn Williams and Paul Freud, who all stepped forward to satisfy our curiosity.

But as surely as night follows day, Livraison doesn’t limit itself to one form of expression. The secret personalites of some are perfectly complemented by the secret appearances of others. In Livraison III, 69 photographers, including Bela Borsodi, Helmut Lang, Sølve Sundsbø, Richard Burbridge and Viviane Sassen, manifest their visions of secret identities by using masks to conceal the real identity of their objects, create a sort of dualism, erase or enhance the person behind the mask and give birth to a new identity.
