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.

  • There’s another video, along the same vein, that I was sent earlier this year and lost that
    makes this guy look like he was shooting with a point and shoot.
    He was a California based fine art photographer who used the entire inside area of his
    van as a bellows and exposed huge sheets of black and white paper via a ‘pinhole’ in the van
    He would walk around inside during exposure and burn and dodge with his hands and arms.
    He would fine tune his compositions by moving the van forwards and backwards and when satisfied
    would jack up the wheels to minimize movement.
    Another very committed individual.

  • Mark…

    That’s a brilliant clip!

  • Mark…

    I’ve seen somewhere that video with the guy using his van as a pinhole.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZfcDs545k2Y

    This the guy? It’s old and a shlocky bit of reporting, but hey it a pinhole van! ;^}

  • Same idea but ‘my guy’ was more contemporary and exposed much larger-Econoline type van.

    That aside there was a link in the same group that is tailor made for civi

  • PANOS,

    Your last post reminds me of the time I was shipping a guitar to someone at the post office. I was in line, chatting with a local artist & musician about music and his old Gibson SG, when it was my turn at the counter. I was asked if I was shipping anything fragile, liquid, perishable, or hazardous – at which point he laughed behind me and said “Maybe… rock-n-roll is dangerous.”

    Glad to hear 02 is ready to ship in the US. Can’t wait to receive mine!

  • @ Frostfrog, congratulations on the newest addition of the frozen amphibian family. If you have not yet left for the workshop and would like to be represented in the burn show, I would be happy to print one for you. I am printing my images this Sunday and would be happy to print yours ad well. I have no wet processing facilities, but can print digital up to 17 X 22. I will be shipping out my prints on Monday or tuesday and would be happy to add yours.

  • Kurt – thank you! That is an amazing offer! I am on the jet to Newark right now, but just before I left I put the image I has hoped to print into my computer, just in case I should find the time in New York to get it printed somewhere. I will send it to you once I get settled down.

    Civi wish this were not happening to you and your nation and thank you. You too Eva and Panos. If I missed anyone it’s because I forgot my reading glasses and it is hard to read comments on my phone inside this jet. So thank you, too.


  • my friends , “we” are working hard here to ship ASAP,,
    We received books around 3pm and now we printing, labeling, blah blah…we will be done by 3am or 5am and wait till 9am and RUUUUUUUUUUUUUNNNNNNNNNN to post office…Americans will have in 4 business days, Canadians…im sorry but you know the drill!!!! sorry 7-10 days , but you know me, im always a “pessimist” so it could be there a little earlier!

  • “A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you, the less you know.”
    diane arbus

  • “Maybe I only had a relationship with her as a photographer, not as a partner. If I hadn’t documented her death, both the description of my state of mind and my declaration of love would have been incomplete. I found consolation in unmasking lust and loss, by staging a bitter confrontation between symbols. After Yoko’s death, I didn’t want to photograph anything but life – honestly. Yet every time I pressed the button, I ended up close to death, because to photograph is to stop time. I want to tell you something, listen closely: photography is murder.”

  • Online eye candy. Essay next week on Burn! ;)

  • i think most of you know i will be totally immersed in my new york loft workshops for the next two weeks, so my presence here will be a limited edition so to speak…most likely these will be the last classes i teach here in the beloved and now probably too well known “kibbutz”….since i am no longer living in this loft with the best view in town , i just cannot figure out a way to justify it financially…doing two workshops per year in this space just isn’t enough to justify…in any case,i will be publishing some ongoing student work in these classes..i have mostly avoided publishing workshop work here on Burn, but we are going to take a different view of how we select work on Burn in the first place, so showing you a bit of “work in progress” will i think be of great interest to many of you…

    and surely you will be getting reports i am sure from our own Frostfrog who is taking this class…yes the boy came all the way from Alaska to join us this week…and of course all of you are invited to the grand finale this coming friday night when Bruce Gilden and Chris Anderson will be the warm up band for Frostfrog and company…this is the part i love the most…mixing the established photographers with the up and coming…the combo works…i do it all the time…in my loft, at home in Carolina, and on the pages of Burn…so please join us….as you all must surely know by now, my door is open….

    cheers, david

  • Uncle P. and dear friends,

    I used instagram from mom’s phone.

    Uncle P. and Mr.David Harvey,I am taking pictures for my new essay “Greece in Revenge”.
    We have lot’s of striks and do not have books yet.

    Have a nice day everybody.


  • I love this family. Although I haven’t been here in voice I have been keeping track somewhat as I had the time. Can’t wait to see Burn 02 and I’m so happy to have this connection. It keeps me sane. Imagine a place where a show is put together virtually to be shown in real time in a real city called San Antonio. We are a virtual reality.

  • David…

    I’m utterly sure everyone who attends your workshops comes away changed. However does everybody attending at the Kibbutz successfully complete their chosen essay in time for the Friday show? I ask this because I’m sure a lot of what you probably teach the pupils are concepts which probably go “click” perhaps in three or four months time.

  • Panos!

    Steve U’s and my print have just been dropped off at the post office. Delivery guaranteed to San Antonio by Friday. I thank Toronto Image Works, and especially Ed Burtynsky’s shipping maven, for doing the impossible and coming up with a method to roll a 9×24 panoramic! All is good now…a pano for Panos. Regards.


    I cannot speak for David and his students, but in my May workshop I immediately realized the benefit. Not true with all my fellow students at the time. I think you are quite right with regard to the advantage of time for some. Probably many of our essays sucked because we had been put through the wringer…that’s my excuse anyway. ;) In the duration since, I believe I have noticed an expansion of skill amongst those I’ve been following; they were the ones that were most despondent about the course to begin with. Beer doesn’t help to complete the essay or sooth the intellectual expansion either.

    Again, ALL, we barely slept last night preparing the shipments for BURN.02 to all American/Csnadian/Mexican destinations..
    ALL BOOKS ARE SHIPPED!!! stay tuned!

  • Panos!!!

    I know, you insist you rap, but I tell you, you ROCK, big time!!!

    Now checking out Vissaria’s link, a bit afraid of what I’ll find..

  • They’re there already? Amazing. So, Panos, are the stars at night big and bright deep in the heart of Texas or is that a lot of PR?

  • Paul… Harry Potter comes to mind. ;^}

  • Michael…

    I just found the NY City version quite cool…

  • And you got the note too, right?

  • Just in case anyone hasn’t noticed, there are only three, count’em three, shopping months till Christmas…Happy Holidays, one and all!!!

  • Akaky, just today my wife said that she wants to do some Christmas shopping soon, before it gets cold. My idea of Christmas is that it starts on the 25th of December and ends on the 25th of December – and if I can duck out of that day I will.

  • AKAKY, hell yeah I got the NOTE!!!!
    I will frame it! It’s as good as a picture:)

  • Good news about Tom Cat: he has been to the vets today. All is well and he is to have an x-ray taken of his leg on the 6th of October. If the scan shows that the broken leg has healed then the vet will also remove the pin from his leg and he and I will gain our freedom. I can’t praise the vet, Andrew Milne, too much. Twice since Tom’s accident I have had to telephone him at weekend for advice and both times he returned my calls after hours – one at 9:30pm on a Sunday. He is a genuinely caring man. Thank you Andrew.


  • Akaky :) totally false! Stars??? All hyped up but but..
    One thing fo sho! The city of SA is HAUNTED.. ghosts everywhere !
    I was riding my bike the other night at about 4-4:30am and after about 10 miles, pitch black, helmer lights on and all safety precautions … And then boom..!! I crashed on the river bike path on a WHITE LAB (dog) that was “sleeping” right in the middle of bike path! I tried to avoid the dog (of course) and I lose balance and fell/crashed sideways (on my right side) .. Scrapes on NY right leg and blah blah.. I get up, picked up bike , looked behind me..!!?? NO DOG , ANYWHERE.. I forgot to add that was the “MOST WHITE dog ” I’ve ever seen .. Too bright white to be honest..
    Anyway, finally made it home, fell asleep, woke up next morning, scrapes all over the right side if my body…!!!!! (because I tilted/fell/crashed to the right..
    BUT… the scratches on my Trek was ONLY IN THE LEFT SIDE!!! ??,
    why? How? What? I’ve no idea!
    And as u all well know me, I’ll be the LAST person on earth to believe in ghosts/gods/devils and crap of this nature!
    Big hug and stay away from the river after midnight! You’ve been warned!

  • PAUL. The fourth one in the NYC set ruins the illusion, as its pretty clumsily done compared to the rest and gives the game away to anyone wondering how its done.

  • DAVID,

    I have a quick question, something what torments me from a long time, well… maybe it is a stupid question… but do you know why all D’Agata’s pictures are not avaiable since last Magnum metting? He sold his picture? Or maybe he is not satisfy from his path?
    Well, for me it is a big mistery…
    If you know the answer and you can share of it…

  • John…

    My wife said exactly the same thing about number four. Actually she finds the whole trick a little creepy.
