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.

  • Diego, one “little detail”
    For Canada ONLY
    we might have the “usual little extra time”…up to a week from the day the books will “hit” the USA shores/distribution center..make sense?

  • OK, this book selling is great and all, but isn’t there an essay laying around somewhere? A single?

  • a civilian-mass audience

    Don’t stand by the water and long for fish; go home and weave a net”
    Chinese Proverbs
    PETE…bring some of your photos in…I know,you have them!!!

  • a civilian-mass audience

    are we sold out yet?are we,are we…???

  • Okay, I was in the city today. Walked from Grand Central to the Battery and then up to Central Park and didn’t see a single Burnian. Where was everybody?

  • a civilian-mass audience


    “laying … a single”…
    shoot me…oime…I am slow…:))))

    ok,I am out…

  • “We are the photo equivalent of the garage band”

    We’re not gonna have to learn the words to Louie, Louie, are we?

  • PETE

    you insatiable photo fiend!! my oh my, in the last 5 days of trying to sell 02 we have changed the pictures up top more than usual..we have changed the lead 4 times in 5 days…you just aren’t paying attention amigo..picture even changed today (single of the animals) and will change tomorrow or next day…we did exactly the same thing last year with 01…yes , we will definitely keep the sales possibility up top for another week or so because if we did not there are many who just would not know we had done a knew volume…and we want to pay our printing bill , so the bankers do not come and get my beach house cause then you would not have a porch to sit on when you come down…. but will also change the pictures up top , none of which you have seen before i am sure….if you just can’t handle it, buy a 02, go finish your essay on Capitol Hill and by the time you have studied 02 and finished your own essay which i want to run here, it will be time to run it!! See, timing and timing!!

    cheers, david

  • Civi you won’t catch anything by jumping up and down by the beach yelling”Hey fish come here”………….. Pete tries to, but the Fish called David won’t bite


    anybody who does not know the words to Louie Louie just does not get invited to the party….which means no party…who can know those words? nasty nasty…hot

  • Fish …………. won’t bite!
    lol and a lil extra lol on the side!

  • a fine little girl is waitin for me
    but i ‘m as bent as dostoevsky
    louie louie
    oh baby i gotta go
    louie louie oh baby
    i gotta go>/i>

  • “Louie Louie” of course has its legion of fans, but I was always more into “Woolly Bully” by Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs. Long. long ago, in a galaxy far away, in another incarnation 5 times removed at least, I spent a week working as a roadie in NYC for Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention (no lie). During their concert at Columbia University’s Macmillan Theater, Sam the Sham was in the audience and Frank called him up on stage… the band rehearsed the song live in front of the audience, and then launched into the most kickass version of “Woolly Bully” I ever heard, with those unforgettable lyrics, “One, two three, quatro…”, “Watch it, now, watch it!” and “Hey, Leroy… yo’ mama… she’s callin’ you man!”

  • a civilian-mass audience

    Do we have to study…lyrics too???
    oh,nooo,nooo…I am a civilian…I don’t do studies…oh,no

    this I have to say…photophilosophers like PETE are true BURNIANS!

    and as SIDNEY says…”one,two,three,quatro…”

    are we sold out yet?:))))))))))))))))))

    P.S…IMANTS…the cat ate the fish…and EVA are you home yet?

  • DAH, aka the party nazi. “No party for you!”
    That reminds me of a hotdog joint in San Jose as well as a tv show in NY.

  • There are actually words to Loui Loui and Wooly Bully? All I know is na na na na na, Wooly Bullyyyyyy, Wooly bully.

    I thought Harvey and I were the only ones here old enough to remmember those tunes.

  • Loui Loui?the only ones here old enough to remmember those tunes.???????????

    u kiddin? thats THE anthem!

  • all along of course with tha:


    the Ramones!

  • Don’t forget about suits for everyone like the kingsmen

  • Have to agree totally with Sidney, I much prefer “Woolly Bully” by Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs than “Louie Louie” or Iggy Pop…

  • IMANTS…the cat ate the fish……………..so what’s the cat fish recipe?

  • a civilian-mass audience

    IMANTS,I don’t know…BUT,BUT…I know a chicken recipe…;)

    hiii…don’t we all love BURN…?:))))))))))))))))

  • see I knew there were very few recipes for cat

  • Actually, to properly perform Louie Louie, you need to be drunk enough to slur the words to make them unintelligible. When I was a young lad of 13 I, like almost every other teen in Texas, was in a little rock band (anyone remember “Battles of the bands” at roller skating rinks?) and since Louie Louie had just come out, we were all over the song. What could make teenage rock band poseurs happier than a rock song with dirty lyrics! Anyway, since none of us actually had access to alcohol, our rendition left a lot to be desired. ;)

  • Civi..

    not home yet, but on the way.. taking a detour, gotta drop off Eric G’s 01 and pick up a 02 or two or so.. and tear at some hair.. ;)

  • Oops my mistake, never been a fan of Iggy Pop perhaps it’s because I’ve never given him a chance…
    Just couldn’t remember what song “Louie Louie” was…
    Classic song like “Woolly Bully”

    Bumped into this just now, forgotten how good this was. Nothing dirty here just another classic…
    And for the John Frusciante and Red Hot Chili fans…

  • MR. HARVEY..

    I don’t know if you realise the huge faith and belief you have in your fellow photograhper colleauges (spelling??) and the audience of BURN and the civillians out there..

    ’cause, if something goes wrong, they’ll really come after YOU, as responsible of this venue.. my bet would be you didn’t think a second about this though.. jump and swim is more your thing..

    It is great that there’s people out there like you.. and along with you Diego and Anton, with equal belief.. thsnk you!

  • a civilian-mass audience

    This is what I call REPORT…!!! JIM POWERS did it!

    EVA…safe travels…tear at some hair?…wow!

    IMANTS…I found a recipe…grilled catfish with garlic…

    can I sing now?

  • a civilian-mass audience

    hiii…I swear to the spirits…I didn’t hack EVA’S account…nope

  • .. thsnk?? THANK, even..

  • I’ve just realized the Burn 02 little images link to a slideshow… WOW!!
    I’m drooling just looking at Burn 02’s content…
    Just seeing a quick look and I’m itching full of inspiration to get out with my camera.

  • a civilian-mass audience

    PAUL…I am gonna wait for your book…

    two years ago…I was waiting for IMANTS…and now,I see myetrouko,Yeah…
    EVA I am waiting…and many others have promised me …

    I am waiting…that’s what I do…and you Deliver…

    What not to LOVE…IMANTS…first copy is mine(you have promised)

  • my copies of burn 02, just arrived at 4:14pm local time (one hour ago)
    it is great to have it. YAY!


  • A little louie, louie for you all… – love that version!

  • Dominik, love the Sonics – they ROCK!

    One of my fave versions, Black Flag’s cover:

  • Baby going home:


    Paul, got yours too!

  • “DOMINIK DUNSCH’s Print arrived in Texas


    thank uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu FRANKFURT Germany!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Panos,
    have a hard time keeping up with your postings on different boards …
    in short: I also mailed you a print from Germany via AIRMAIL last week
    and would be interested to know if it has arrived in TEXAS?


  • Eva – that is quite a thought! Hopefully, that will never happen, but if it should, we who will stand ready to back him up will number in the legions.

    Jim – In my opinion, one of the greatest, if not the greatest, rockers ever came out of those Texas bands. Of course, I mean Buddy Holly. Did you ever get to play with him?

    Man, I am jealous just thinking about it!

    Now, I agree with whoever left the comment yesterday – and I am too lazy to backtrack and refresh my memory – it is time for a new essay to pop up here!

  • Gerhard
    yes me too..im lost in all those rooms but mainly in the labyrinth of my own mind!
    Not yet, just received Dominik’s print from Frankfurt Germany..

    i will let u know asap , once i get it!

  • u know what im gonna do soon..im gonna post a gallery from every print and every photog participating (willingly or simply by twisting the arm;)

  • Civi..

    I have promised and will keep the promise.. but scrambling a bit at the moment, don’t know when.. not first copy from me.. but with a print, ok?

  • Hey PANOS,

    Get your greasy thumb off the image area of Dominik’s print! That is what the white margins are for! That Instagram photo scares me silly… Seriously, those are some bad manners, dude, when people are not only sending you their precious prints but forking over big postage rates to do so. If I catch you putting your thumbprints in the middle of either of the prints I just sent you, your ass will be grass and I will be the lawnmower!

    Otherwise, I appreciate and admire your efforts, but watch those thumbs!

  • Sidney…lol ..i wasnt touching it at all! but its a photo, two dimensions..my thumb is too close those..i got gloves!!!!!!!

  • btw



  • , your ass will be grass and I will be the lawnmower!
    good one ;)
    one love!
