Some of you were on hand September 1 in Perpignan for the launch of Burn 02. By all accounts, the buzz on Burn and Burn 02 was palpable. In all my years in the business, I never saw quite this sort of “big warm”. Was it the slide show? Was it the new in print magazine? Perhaps those things helped. But it was way more than a function of display. It was about YOU. This audience. This audience who supported new and original work by Paolo Pellegrin and Alisa Resnik and Bruce Gilden and others to be seen now first in Burn 02.

Burn 02 is not a repeat of Burn online. Burn 02 is its own original work. A 1500 copy limited editon. Online is terrific, but when you hold 02 in your hand, you will know what photography is all about from our perspective. I am not published in it. I wish I was. The place to be published for sure.

Yes, 02 was a collaboration. But there is always one person who is THE driving force. Diego Orlando, our special projects editor, is that person for 02. Anton and I were in the background on this baby. Designed and printed and bound with loving care in Italy by the very best, you will quickly see why there is pride all around.

I am proud of this magazine/book…I can say this in a way I could never say with my own work. That requires silence. But I can say that this feels like my best effort so far  as the director/coach and not in it as a direct “player”…Yet  I made something happen..Put the talents of others to work..Gave them all the rope they could handle. Kept an eye out..Mostly to set a standard….And to push everyone just a bit further than they wanted to be pushed..I knew they would thank me later …laughing…I will say no more now. On the front flap I wrote:

We are the photo equivalent of the garage band. Can this last/should this last? No. There is a curve on any creative endeavor. We are not at the peak yet. When we get there, then we will do something else and start the whole process over again. Could be an evolution, or could be a revolution. So let’s enjoy this moment. Now is the time to appreciate what we have, seek out new ways of doing things, celebrate our mutual language and push it just as far as we can possibly go.

  • It’s just beautiful. Congratulations.

  • Will there be copies at the loft available for purchase?

  • Is the same david@burnmagazine address still the right one to send you a message, David, BTW?

  • OK just ordered…$22.25 to ship to Canada..whew.

  • David, it was an honour meeting you in Perpignan at La Poste. You showed me BURN.02 and it really looked amazing. I just ordered. Can’t wait to receive my copy.

  • ALL:
    I’m back to normal life after a great week in Perpignan.
    Too much to see, too short time :-(, but I talked with some nice people (photographers and not) and hope being there in 2o12.

    One of the goals of this year was to met some burnians and have two greats books signed by the authors. “Cuba” and “Odo Yakuza”. The books are now resting with an enormous joy in my shelf beside Burn 02.
    I’m pretty sure that burn 02 will be sold out in a few weeks as it “brother” did last year… And yes, something different from and online magazine. Grazie a Diego! 1,4kg of pure photographic essays.
    What a coincidence that the person in the cover, shoot by EPF Argentinian winner is named “Diego”! ;-)

    I’m also happy to have talked at least a few minutes with them in the Cafe de la Poste.

    Your signature/comment in the first page my the book keeps me thinking all the way back home.
    “Jump and fly, but jump with sensibility”, here an image of that page -> http://www.patricio-michelin.com/

    Will put that in practice, cause that is the right direction (of photography and life).

    Thanks a lot for that and thanksx1000 for what you do/did/will do in burnmagazine with the rest of the folks.

    Thanks also to David for his terrific energy and for signing my Cuba book at 3am after the Burn projection, looks like everyone is a friend of him (and not in the FaceBook style), he was surrounded and talking and spreading energy to everyone!

    I won’t do a report ’cause Eric Espinosa has already done that very well.
    Hope to see David, Anton, Diego, Audrey, Lauras, Eric, GG and everyone else with Burn 03 next year with more time…

    PS: DAVID: your spanish astonished me! :-)

  • A la EMCD, anyway to reserve a copy and pick it up at the loft?

  • DONE! now the hard part begins…..the wait!
    Looks amazing….nice fonts and page number layout. Sorry I notice those things ;-)
    Can’t wait!
    Thank you!

  • Burn 02 looks amazing :-))) I just ordered…wish I could come and pick up a copy at the loft…€ 22 shipping costs to EU…but I am SURE it’s worth all the hard cash ;-). Congrats to you all, Burnians!

  • the answer to ALL ABOVE QUESTIONS is : YES!

  • aLSO for whoever attends the BURN-ED GALLERY IN TEXAS, books will be available for SALE there too…!

    I’M DOING MY BEST TO KEEP ALL PRINTS IN PERFECT SHAPE (keeping it away from Lola that is-the Dogg)..
    MY dream is to SELL ALL of them so the photogs can profit and BURN raises enough $$ for the NEXT EPF FINALIST!..
    Yes, thats my hope if possible..to keep moving the BURN GALLERY AROUND THE WORLD, TOURING LIKE AN OLD SCHOOL ROCK’N’ROLL BAND!
    “The Burning Stones”? maybe? (lets just stay away from Keith Richards, thats all;)

  • Ordered it, than looked at the pictures. Stunning!
    now looking forward to have it in my hands.

  • Ordered!

    My wife asked me a couple of days ago what I wanted for a birthday present. I said, “Burn ’02,” of course.

  • MW..

    sure…if you do it that way, you also get a complimentary beer, or two..but then, you KNOW that!! good move…see you soonest…

    cheers, david

  • JIM..

    many thanks my friend…and as much as i want to meet you, i am even more anxious to meet your bride…for sure a very strong woman…

    Burn would not be Burn without you..

    cheers, david


    you are looking at something wrong..shipping cannot be that much…if you in Europe , we ship from there , not from U.S…

  • Jim, u have to come and support BURN in SA Texas.. i know u only a few miles away (Sugarland that is;)

  • Congratulations to all who contributed to Burn 02; I’ve been away from Burn over the last few weeks with family stuff taking priority. But I’ve still had a sneaky peek most days, just haven’t had time to contribute… Again; congtratulations! :-)

  • “Pictures are everywhere, all the time. If you are in the right mood, there is for sure a picture right in front of you. Any time, all the time. It is never necessary to go someplace else. Where you are is THE place to be.”

    Yes! Exactly. Even though I do make many forays into what most people would consider the extreme and exotic (although it has come to seem quite normal and everyday to me and it is home to me, where I like to be) this is what I always try to follow, and to communicate with people. When people who do not know me learn that I am a photographer, they almost always tell me that Alaska is the right place for a photographer. They generally assume that I am out to take pretty pictures of wildlife and scenery.

    “Any place is the right place for a photographer,” I tell them. “I see a photo everywhere I look.” And to make my point, I often take their photo, right there on the spot.

    As to Burn ’02, will I be safe waiting to purchase it until I get to New York in just over two weeks? I won’t have to worry about shipping, then.

  • sorry Jim..u r not in Sugarland…you are wayyyyy closer , Tyler, right?

  • Ross, WE are the Family, the Priority;)

  • you either stay here or you’ll see some japanese gangsters at your door soon-ly ;)

  • Speaking of Texas, Jim, up here in New York we have all that water you guys have been praying for. Could you send some guys with ten gallon hats up here and take some of it? We’re running out of space to put it all. Thanks

  • David,

    I’m based in Munich and when I placed my order for BURN.02 I too was charged €22 for shipping (€35 for BURN.02, €22 shipping) so I guess this is similar to what rosaslight saw. Its a lot but as I missed out on BURN.01 I wanted to get this one.

    Ps. I also just ordered Anton’s Second Edition book so my card used well in the last hour!

  • Akaky, I always wondered where the “happy little burg” you referred to was!

  • Panos, I’m about 300 driving miles from San Antonio.

  • Jim; isn’t that just a drive to the supermarket in Texas? ;-)

  • Gordon, I’m sorry, but I thought everyone knew where out happy little burg was. Our happy little burn lies in the Hudson Valley of this our Great Republic’s Vampire State, where it has always lain, ever since that happy day when Henry Hudson stopped here in 1609 to relieve himself near where the train station is now. I am sure that the place resonated with happiness even before Henry dropped his deuce in Metro-North’s parking lot, but having a real live celebrity honor us with a bowel movement made everyone’s day; as soon as he left, the Chamber of Commerce was already rife with plans to improve the tourist trade based on the new attraction.

  • Ha, you know I bring a six pack, at least. Hoping to meet many of the burnians coming in for the loft send-off though. I’m sure it will be a special time.

  • Jim , u r right…Tyler is super east…really pretty Kim says..tall treees and u guys get lots of rain..
    (i apologize coz its my very first time in texas and as u noticed by previous comments , im a Texas ignorant..although riding a bile around the Missions is almost as rewarding as riding my bike in VENICE beach!

  • big CONGRATULATIONS to all!!
    it’s kind of amazing to see all of what’s happened since “Road Trips” (which i still miss..).
    still way behind the curve and haven’t seen burn01 yet.
    any seattleites out there with a copy who will let me have a peak? :)

  • Panos, not in the city of Tyler, I am in Tyler County. Big state! :)

  • looks fantastic : ))

    shipping to australia $49.15…. ouch!

    but what to do – i want it want it want it…

    any ideas before i hit the button?


  • Jim, :) told ya im a texas newbie… either come if you can!..that’ll be a great nice surprise!

  • Sam, come to Texas or go Brooklyn..unless u visit Venice Italy…;)

  • its that Akaky IRL guy im afraid i’ll never be able to do a portrait of…

  • I’m sorry, Katia, but I don’t think the State of Washington will give you a peak of your very own, not unless you promise to clean up after the eruptions. You might want to get one of those Dyson vacuum cleaners for those jobs. I hear they’re very good.

  • Panos : )) now that is a great idea… then i can hand deliver you a print : ))
    (which buy the way is about to ship to you… sorry for delay… but it will be shipped Monday)
    i could do a cheeky stop over in LA too and maybe chuck in Bangkok too round it out…
    if only!!

  • WOW!!
    a truly amazing community!!!!
    BuRNING it up!!!
    And DAH
    I think your love of fog must have something to do with your connection to San Fran, no? :)

  • Sam, lol…theres no BURN exhibition without your print…of course i’ll wait!

    GORDON, was nice enough to send me two prints, printed in the BEST POSSIBLE WAY,(i couldnt afford that honestly), a B&W and a Color PRINT..
    I HAVE ONE WORD for print quality: UN-F*****G-BELIEVABLE!


  • Btw, Wendy, thank you for coming down to the Cadillac Hotel, Venice Beach and party at Robin’s Dudley Garden!..by the fire!!!!!!!

  • !!!!!


    will order as soon as i pay off my trip…

    looks rad…and beautiful…
