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.

    Patricio M, link , sorry forgot to add above!

  • John…

    You’ve made my day!! :)) My first reaction seeing myself roaring in laughter was to cringe, but then suddenly a flood of funny memories came flooding back and it’s obvious you’ve managed to capture all that fun.

    Yes Rene Burri, Koudelka, Goldberg, Soth and Donovan Wylie. I remember Soth wrapped in that odd blanket, he seemed rather shocked by all our fun! Let’s not forget John Vink!!

  • JOHN G!
    great slideshow!..gracias!

  • I’m rather stranded at the moment! Stuck in warehouse 10 hours daily sitting on a industrial fork truck storing piles of loaded pallets full of kitchen appliances. Continually checking warehouse stock and supervising client orders very very far removed from photography :)!
    Got my G10 in my pocket all the time, it’s amazing now that I’m back at work after 23 months how photographically interesting the warehouse and my work mates are!!
    But I must get hold of a new smartphone urgently missing Burn tooooo much!!
    Has anyone tried the Samsung Galaxy Ace?

  • Well fuck. Just Fuck!


    Some worthless asswipe decided he wanted to graduate to worthless douche-bag and try to blow up the Pentagon and Capitol bldg with drones. (allegedly, of course!) And, of course, he HAD to travel down there and photograph them first, right? What… Google Earth isn’t enough? Jesus! That’s all we need. Give the “authorities” more reason to harass photographers!



    “Ferdaus allegedly traveled to Washington, D.C. to take photos of his targets in May 2011, all while under FBI surveillance.”

    I’d really like to punch this guy.

  • Michael…hmm
    yeah it makes u wonder..will this affect us (photogs) here in USA?
    guess what!
    AND of course it will!:(

  • I wonder why it is that dead people are always so hard to find. It’s not they’re going anywhere or doing anything to try to keep me from finding them, nor do I understand why their relatives, who presumably should know where their dead family members are, given that they were at the funeral and I wasn’t, should find remembering where they left Aunt Tillie so difficult. I also don’t understand why they think I should know where they left Aunt Tillie back in 1973 and why they get upset with me when I tell them I don’t know where they buried Aunt Tillie; did they look under the couch? That’s generally where I find lost stuff.

  • @ PANOS:
    Thanks for the Instagram picture! I’m glad that it cross the Atlantic “pond” safely.
    The picture is very personal for me…
    Thanks also for the advice about cost of life in Schwazzennegerland in your last comment. I don’t even plan to go there…


    PS: Looking at the Rio picture, answer me this: How can people live in cities like Quebec, Helsinki, Oslo, Moscow, Siberia “county” and stuff like that, specially in winter??

  • @ JOHN VINK:
    Last week the exhibition of “Objectif Developement” finished in downtown Lyon, FRANCE. A great exhibition, very well done. I’ve really like you pictures as well as Paolo’s water drought serie in Gaza. On Friday it was opened until 10PM. It’s great to see open-air exhibition in a warm summer night.
    Now its moves to Clermont and then to Marseille.

  • They hibernate , definitely not living, although J.A Sobol, proves me wrong!

  • BRUCE LEE once said” flow like water..like a bird”

    Smart Birds emigrate u know! Stubborn ones dont!
    they end up being like AKAKY, with a constant black cloud above their heads!!!!!!!…smiling

  • Bruce Lee – “Be shapeless, formless, like water……”

  • Panos, thanks for letting me know… sent the print off on the 12th and I was starting to worry if it would make it in time…
    thanks for the pics as well! Can I post a link to them on our facebook page?

  • panos:

  • Bob, AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    JOHN WATERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • pAtrIcIO m:

    thanks for the feedback. Glad you liked it. Here is a ‘director’s cut’ of the ‘Better Factories':

  • JOHN VINK!!!!!!!!!! AWESOOOOOOME!!!!!!!!

  • See that? You’re a constant black cloud over my head. Everybody knows it now.

    AKAKY IRL: Word up, mofo. Black is beautiful, baby, and don’t you ever forget it.

    AKAKY: There is something inherently weird about a middle-aged white Republican playing the race card these days.

    AKAKY IRL: Tell me about it.

  • Black is beautiful,
    how can you NOT agree with Akaky???

  • Panos…

    just caught your post from a few pages back… glad the prints made it!!!



    btw. paper is cotton rag

  • but…we all gotta read “burn” more often coz a lot of s%$t happen here;)


    Thanks for showing us the multi-media piece “Better Factories.” Very good job!

    I’m curious about who you see as the audience for this work… and your preferred method of delivery???

    I’m also curious about whether there is a version with titles written in Cambodian?

    And… what is the state of TV journalism in Cambodia? Do things like this show up regularly on TV there?

    And, and, and… lots of questions! For starters… what is the access to Internet and access to computers situation like for most Cambodians? (I assume it is wildly different in Phnom Penh as opposed to the countryside).

  • BOB,

    That’s an awesome picture/quote by John Waters! For comic relief, at the bottom of the page someone posted this of a senator from my state: http://themetapicture.com/the-many-faces-of-senator-mitch-mcconnell/

    For the dog-lovers on Burn (Paul, I’m talking to you) that may not be familiar with “Stains” the cupcake dog in the center of the above-linked collage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTuOr2vlC-c

  • a civilian-mass audience

    keep reporting…
    your links,my food for thought
    your vision…my hope…

    I love you ALLLL…my Sublimes BURNIANS…!

  • a civilian-mass audience

    AKAKY…I might be out BUT 1000 will be mine…:)))

    spread the news…civi has 3 more baby chickens…

    and don’t give up…believe in YOU !!!

  • Sidney:

    I’m curious about who you see as the audience for this work…
    -The audience? Anyone who wants to look/ read/ listen… But in this case (it was an assignment) the target audience was the French public to whom the activities of the AFD (the French Development Agency) had to be explained on the occasion of their 50th anniversary. This multimedia was the basis upon which the official version in French was put together.

    and your preferred method of delivery???
    -No preference: anything goes….

    I’m also curious about whether there is a version with titles written in Cambodian?
    -Nope there isn’t…

    And… what is the state of TV journalism in Cambodia? Do things like this show up regularly on TV?
    -TV journalism is basically being a spokesperson of the government. Not one TV station is independent and self-censorship is all over the place. Critical reporting is extremely rare. If things like this, which is not even really critical, show up it would be sponsored by NGO’s and considered as a commercial. But even this might change for worse soon as a new law is under discussion which will allow the authorities to scrutinize the NGO activities much more closely, and particularly those NGO’s dealing with Human Rights.

    And, and, and… lots of questions! For starters… what is the access to Internet and access to computers situation like for most Cambodians? (I assume it is wildly different in Phnom Penh as opposed to the countryside).
    -The Internet is available in all the cities, and WIFI is free in every single hole-in-the-wall bar. But although things change rapidly, it is slow and expensive (50$/month for a 512kbps connection). Internet cafés have ways to circumvent bandwith issues and attendance is high, even in remote towns. There is a thriving blogosphere activity where the younger generation can vent its frustrations, but very popular (and critical) blogs are censored by the IP’s themselves out of fear of govt. retaliation. We’re not there yet but I think it’s going the Chinese way of dealing with the Internet…

  • It’s funny how when you over think something you just don’t do it right… I’m up to my eyebrows with work, laughing – actually I feel very lucky looking at how Spain is running to catch up with poor Greece, I know many without a job. But I’m digressing; I’m extremely busy without any real time for photography, my mind is loaded with other tasks, but I’m seeing everywhere images. The daily boring hum of life is full of images and the creative side of my brain is on autopilot and I’m seeing my life and not one of the Magnums life in a book, whiz past and I’m continually pulling out my camera and just taking images. I’ve no time for worries about rules and crap, only enough of a split second, exposure, click and back in my pocket. These damn images feel more authentic and hellishly more interesting than anything I was doing 22 months ago.
    DAH was sooooooooooooo right about all I needed to make anything of any consequence was there in front of me, I’ve been tripping over it again and again.

  • Justin…

    Laughing!! That dog link is funny is it me or is this family a little odd!!
    Wouldn’t it have been easier to put the cupcakes out of the dogs reach, than hire a dog trainer?!?!
    Anyway there must be some trick here, what the hell is that dog looking at behind the camera, he or she is mesmerized?

  • So how’s Frostfog doing at the Kibutz?
    Very interested to hear his comments on the whole experience :)

  • JOHN V.

    Many thanks for your replies to my questions and the link to the article. Very informative.
    I had not realized the scale of Internet use in Vietnam and Thailand…

  • John V,

    Lovely video but more than that it puts a whole other perspective on bringing jobs back to America….the double edge sword.

  • a civilian-mass audience

    I might be out…BUT I am here to report…bad news
    I have Good news…HAPPY BIRTHDAY…SEAN,JACOB,LEE hmmm…I forgot someone…

    ENJOY your B-d!!!

    PANOS…you are the MASTER of reporting…YES,YOU do Deliver!

    MR.VINK …credit to you…YOU DO Report


  • Burn02 arrived today! ON MY BIRTHDAY! Did you plan that Panos? What a sweet dude you are. Love it. Like the size of this one much better than the first one. Headed out to shoot Bikes, Blues & BBQ, an annual bike rally here that reportedly draws over 200K bikes and each bike has at least two people on them. Do the math for a town of 70K…Will check out the book fully after.

    What a wonderful birthday. First lunch with my lovely aunts and daughter, then to the post office to find Burn02 and the BB&Q begins today! I love bikers.

    Happy birthday to all who have one today and around this time. Thanks DAH, Anton, Michelle M, Diego, Anna, Claudia and post office Panos! Sigh…..

  • Happy Birthday Lee!! :)

  • The prints are all very nice, as are the videos, but let’s face it, no one really wants to look at that stuff. They want to see this:


    and if you go to 00:38, you’ll see my print moving…;-)

  • PAUL,

    I don’t know what is going on with that dog (smiling)! Every time that my daughter and I watch that clip, we crack up!


    Burn 02 arrived in Kentucky today. Thank you! I haven’t been able to spend quality time with it yet, but so far, I’m blown away.
