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.

  • Just bought mine!! I’m really excited, I missed the first one, I had to buy this one, it just look great!

  • AKAKY– i caught that as soon as i hit submit! damn these no edit/delete options.

  • Thanks for the compliment Panos, but hey, you could afford it. Those were printed with my ancient wood-burning Epson 2200 set up for matte, on Epson radient white watercolour paper. I’ve seen these printers used for a hundred bucks!

  • Gordon those photos are sweet………!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • of course im a color guy and i will do b&w when/if i ever grow up;)

  • PAUL

    i was in error when i told Rosalight that 22 Euros seemed to high..i did some investigating and found out indeed that shipping in Europe is 22 Euros…i asked why…reason: to ship anything safely and with a tracking record, UPS the best way to go..a bit more expensive? yes, but just a bit…to prevent lost books Diego felt this was the smartest way to go…i go with Diego on this one….we are just passing on a cost…thanks and i hope you will feel it is worth it…i am proud of this magazine/book…my best effort as the director/coach and not in it as a direct “player”…but i made something happen..put the talents of others to work..gave them all the rope they could handle…and 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…

    cheers, david

  • Panos, I have an Epson 2200 collecting dust, it’s yours if you want it. It was/is a great printer but will eat you up in ink. It has not been run in a few years so I am sure the head is clogged and will need to be flushed out. Let me know if you want it.

  • Panos

    How ’bout some instagram print teasers?

  • KURT yes!

    MARK yes!

    and DAH yes yes yes and yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • and to push everyone just a bit further than they wanted to be pushed..i knew they would thank me later

    later??????? nah!
    what better place than here what better time than now!!!!!!!

  • i am going order one right now…

  • Panos, FB me a mailing adress and I will get it in the mail, no garunties as the coals have not been stoked under this Epson in a few years.

  • DAH, I plan on being up at the loft on the 1st for the slide show, but I know you will be in Mentor mode and will be happy to just to soak it all in. Let me know if you need someone to run the Burn 2 sales booth as I have a feeling it might be a hot topic. When and if your travel schedule accommodates it I would truly enjoy some coffee and a little one on one time on your porch.

  • David, UPS is very expensive for international shipping, at least to Canada. Besides the big initial cost, they then ding me another big chunk for clearing customs. The US postal service is much cheaper, very reliable, and the the Canadian post office charges me much less to clear customs. Unfortunately, many of my US suppliers seem married to UPS and will not ship USPS.
    Not complaining, looking forward to Burn 02. Just keeping things in perspective, I always remind myself that almost any book I buy is much less than I charge my clients for a single 8×10 print.
    From the previews it seems that there is a lot of material in Burn 02 that did not appear on this site. I’m excited!

  • Kurt/Panos
    I resurected my 2200 this spring after not having printed anything on it for about two years. For work I use a 7880 which is set up for glossy but I wanted to print some matte black and white. Anyway, it took about four cleaning cycles to clear it.
    The inks are really not that expensive unless you are trying to do production work. They can be had online for as little as 10 bucks for a cartridge (there are seven).
    These printers use the original Ultrachrome ink set which is great but does display much more metamerism ( print colour changes with light source) than the present ink sets. I usually add some warmth to my black and white prints to compensate for a cyan shift under daylight.
    I’ll gladly give you any help I can Panos if you decide to take up Kurts offer. The biggest challenge to making good prints is calibrating your moniter, and proper use of profiles in the print interface. When it finally all came together for me it was as if the heavens opened and I had been let in on the secrets of the universe.

  • Gordon, USPS will be the MAN…
    I absolutely agree witchu!


    very little of 02 appeared here online…the order of appearance may vary..first here, later in print, or first in print later online…no point in pure repetition…and you will see at least one story in 02 that would have been almost impossible to look quite right online..some things just have to be in print…

    ahh Gordon, alas shipping is not my specialty…please query Diego if you seriously concerned and have a clear better plan that would work for all…we are always open to logic…..www.diego@burnmagazine.org .. i can tell you Gordon that he tried to choose the most reliable and track easy method he could find that would make the most sense for the most people..two ship points…Italy and Texas…for you we are shipping out of Texas..so i am thinking most likely USPS..you were reading about Europe….for sure in the most expensive countries it would be wise for some to group ship…would save everybody a lot of money…we obviously make no money on the shipping..we pass on the direct cost..

    all of us sincerely hope you will cherish this book …and aspire to be in it at some point…after all , that is the whole point of Burn…to publish this readership….ok yes, we throw in a couple of established photographers each time…but my ratio of 5 to 1 unknown to known still holds….

    many thanks for your support…we hope you feel we earned it…

    cheers, david

  • David, let me know if you will be sending it to me as a result of the FB contest. I will be happy to donate to cover largely the cost of sending it, BTW. If not, I still would not wish to miss having not and will order it. But you need to let me know, amigo!

  • Hey, don’t complain about shipping! In Texas, we get dinged for the taxes, too. And the math still doesn’t add up!

    Subtotal $45.00 USD
    Shipping and handling 0
    Tax $5.86 USD
    Total $63.02 USD
    Payment $63.02 USD

  • ^^ haha that’s nothing. I’m not complaining. I’m happy to pay for this, I (really stupidly) hesitated when I saw the shipping cost to Australia for burn 01 and then when I finally gave in, it was gone. Not letting it happen this time. Shipping to Australia costs more than the actual book. But I think it’ll be worth it. $115AUD total. Better be good, David ;)

    Can’t wait to get it!

  • Hey Panos,
    I’ll probably send you a print tomorrow.
    Have you decided if you’ll set up a table for books as well?

  • Well, Burn 01 was definitely worth the bucks, so I’m looking forward to 02 arriving. I’m just spoiled by Amazon Prime cheap shipping. ;)

  • forgot to mention last night, i LOVE this picture of the green girl with the green tree in the green mist! :)))))….

    btw, Marinka showed BURN01 to Boris Mikhailov this summer….so…..

    those are some eyes who saw burn01…i wouldn’t hesitate to swallow burn02…you can always ebay the delivery costs in 2 years ;))))…

    will order it next week on payday and then will write about it when i see it, and this (fine line Sidney) will be a ‘written’ review..


  • Just to confirm shipping costs: sending Burn.01 from Italy to either Spain or the UK, WITHOUT tracking, by regular mail sevice, not courier, is € 15 each.. it’s insane, but that’s how it is.. and I don’t think 02 is any less heavy than 01.. plus tracking is nice and essential, I’ve heard back from Paul, no word from Framers Intent, no idea where the book has ended up.. can you figure having these kind of problems with 1500 books? Anybody would become crazy!

  • !!!CANADIANS!!!

    I’ve just been invited on a NYC roadtrip for this weekend. If this could work, I’d be happy to pick-up any BURN 02 magazines, and then mail them first-class to you when I get home. This should be a major savings for all. David and co. will have to co-ordinate with me, but I think it can work. I’ll be leaving tonight at 10pm, so we have until then to figure out all the details. Discuss here until then.

    Payback time..

  • a civilian-mass audience

    are we SOLD OUT…yet?

  • I’m just spoiled by Amazon Prime cheap shipping. ;)


    Glad I’m not the only one.

  • Panos – Glad to hear it. We need to see images from the displays!

  • Speaking about books.. just got this one in the mail:


    So looking forward to see the 40 new photographs in this edition.. this is one of the books that have opened my eyes a few years back when I completely changed way of not only making pics, but looking at photography..

    Are we sold out yet?? IS IT THE 15th YET????? Ufff……….

    And for those who might have missed it.. ANTON’s up to something too.. HE and DAH are to hold responsible if I ever finish something, that is the biggest lesson I have learnt hanging around here..

  • Great to see Burn 02!!
    I’m spoilt by Amazon UK’s free European shipping, but no worries 02 will be utterly worth it!!

  • Epson 2200!!

    I’m still using mine I didn’t bother with profiles and went all the way and bought the ImagePrint Rip about six years ago. Nothing beats that at all and if someone argues with me it’s because they haven’t tried it! OK price is excessive but I get new profiles for EVERY new paper that comes out and each folder for each new paper has a profile for all standard lighting/viewing conditions that kills any metamerism problems….
    As Gordon has commented the Epson 2200 works best with matt papers although it’s not a metamerism problem when I use glossy paper in ImagePrint, it’s the damn “bronzing” the original Ultrachrome inks create…

  • First Drafts: How Sam Abell Makes a Photograph:



    when we start selling millions of books like Amazon, then i think we will also have free shipping!! in the meantime, have a few less beers this week and support your colleagues!! and get a nice book! not available on Amazon at any price…hell, you know i will buy you all the beer anyway…

    here is another way to look at it…Burn 01 which sold originally for 45 bucks is now being sold for 75-100 bucks signed..some people of course bought several copies for this reason..so buy two of 02 and sell in a few months and pay for the shipping, or buy three, sell two in six months, and make money …i used to sign sign sign books when i first published ..for book stores etc..flattered..ahhh, but then i realized i was just making big bucks for the book stores a couple of years down the line…not all books go up in price…limited editions most likely of course..but you can pretty much figure the ones that will…01 is up 50-75% from last year at this time….pretty fast rise in a dead economy

    cheers, david

  • “Burn 01 which sold originally for 45 bucks is now being sold for 75-100 bucks signed”

    Whoa. So all I have to do is sign my copy and I can make money off of it? Will the snotty comments I wrote under everyone’s pictures jack the price up? And how about the corrections to my text? OMG, I’m sitting on a fortune here!

  • David…

    Laughing!! I was only joking, I have no intention of missing out on Burn 02!!

  • David…

    BTW are we going to see any of your work published this year or are going to have to impatiently wait till New Year?

  • PAUL

    well, i have three projects each 95% finished…RIO will be a book and a tabloid by May 2012..and a full blown article in NatGeo at about the same time…and opening exhibitions in Sydney, Rio, and probably a couple of other venues by then…yet, going down to Rio in a few weeks for one last live it live it on the edge shoot…..

    Outer Banks i am shooting now, labor of love, and it should be a NatGeo story in 2012 also, but not sure when…not sure if i will have a book or not…yes, i have lots of pictures, even lots of meaningful pictures, but lots of pictures does not necessarily a book make…we will see..i have to write that one as well..

    Family Drive continues on exhibition tour (next Valencia, Spain) even as i shoot more…it is just a work in progress forever…i shoot on this all the time ….i have sold three of the 15 handmade books (that do not even exist yet) already as part of this project, but the final exhibition and book will not come until the end of 2012…

    other than the above, i don’t have much going on….well yes Burn…this is making me sleepy….

    cheers, david


    good question,very very good question…but i have no answer….”these people” just came out of…well, i just do not know…just remember, you are one of them!!

    hugs, david
