This paper deals with one of the most popular picture type, photograph, especially the type called private photograph. Regarding its emergence, photograph is connected to modernity. It represented a new way of seeing and became popular very quickly. In the private use of picture, photography became the most accepted tool to interpret and receive reality. In studies on photograph, the way photograph is used has to play a crucial role. This paper first of all examines to what extent photograph is suitable for expressing sacred and spiritual values and meanings. In theoretical works on photograph there are references to the fact that, besides orientation on reality, photograph has also a feature to refer to something „outside" and somehow to "touch and hurt" its receiver. This conception was described the most effectively in Roland Barthes's last work. In religious tradition - which primarily means the Catholic use of picture in this paper - there are various cases of the appearance of the sacred or the numinose, private photography is attempted to be placed into this context.
