Yoga trance


I am not a tech person at all, yet I do take pride in my ability to hand hold slow shutter speeds. Yoga trance. This image from Bahia on ISO 50 film must hv had me wide open 1.4 at a quarter of a second. I love slow film in low light. No other look quite like it. Upcoming piece in Leica M features my Brazil work. Nice n easy #Bahia #Brazil #leica

Salvador, Bahia

Salvador, Bahia. One of the images featured in the upcoming Leica M magazine. Velvia ISO 50 film using a beer bottle as a tripod. Leica M-6. Finest workhorse camera ever. An exhibit of my Brazil work also coming up at Festival of the Photograph June 10-13. Show up, buy me a beer, and I will give you the tripod in a pinch demo.

Carnaval in Bahia

Carnaval. Bahia, Brazil. One of 15 of my Brazil images being featured in the upcoming issue of Leica’s M magazine. This one shot on Fuji Velvia film with a Leica M-6 and a tiny tweak of strobe. Other work featured shot with the M-9 and photographs shot very recently for my BeachGames zine with the Monochrom. A very handsome layout to be sure. Previous featured photographers include Burn’s own Anton Kusters with “Yakuza”; Alex Webb with his Rochester series; Jan Grarup and war in Africa; Bruce Gilden with NYC portraits; and Trent Parke with his “Dreamtime” essay in Australia.

Late Night. BeachGames zine coming soon. True stories with witnesses. #beachgames #rio #burnmagazine #BurnBooks



I rarely, if ever, take sunrise or sunset pictures. My good neighbor in the Outer Banks @obxhomepage Frank owns that territory here. Yet after being sick in bed for two days, I climbed the sand dune in front of my house this morning, saw this, and could not resist, That line of cottages are the last of the original Nags Head summer cottages, most around 60-90 years old. Probably about 40 of them left. When the first mainlanders built here the beachfront property was free. Homestead law. The outer banks were considered uninhabitable at the time. That property isn’t free anymore, and about 35,000 year around residents call this fragile strip of sand home. This is one of the reasons why. #outerbanks

A beer with Micha Bar Am



I have a beer with legend Magnum photographer for 60 years, Micha Bar Am. Part of the Magnum tribe is gathered in Madonna di Campiglio in the Dolomites for a bit of skiing and looking at each other’s latest work. Yes a bit of biz too, yet mostly we are here just to enjoy the mountains.  ‪#‎magnumphotos‬

Olga & Dasha


Olga and Dasha from Moscow dance to the music at lunchtime break before making another ski run in the Dolomites in Madonna di Campiglio. I rarely get a chance to ski and am in basic survival get to the bottom of the mountain safe mode. Spectacular spring ski weather has everyone exalting.

Anna Maria & Luciano


Anna Maria and Luciano have been married for 55 years. They are the owner/managers of my hotel in Madonna di Campiglio in the Dolomites. Anna Maria loves flowers and they are everywhere. Skiing is the scene here and some of my Magnum colleagues have gathered just to ski, hike, and share new book dummies etc.. It’s a family affair. Better hosts we could not have. The best of times.
