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.

    AKAKY IRL: Really? Why is that?

    AKAKY: You won’t learn the words to Louie Louie. You’ve been disinvited.

    AKAKY IRL: I don’t know how I’ll go on living, guy.

    AKAKY: I knew you were going to say that.

    AKAKY IRL: I’ve become predictable in my dotage.

    “THE GLOVES”…(Live from the United States of America!)

  • congrats to all, can’t wait for my copy :)

  • Pete
    You’ll have to settle for my “what I did on Labour day weekend” snaps.


  • Gordon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    thats some cool sh$t!dig it… especially the gal with the “tube” in the beach!


    Wow! I love your coverage of the Island holiday beach bash… it is SO British Columbia Coast!
    Many great pictures there… I especially like the crowd at the potluck table, feeding the rabbits, the lady in red, and the starry night sky. Thanks for sharing your wonderful long weekend with us!

    Unfortunately, it looks like our all too brief summer is now over…


    Forgot to mention the trombone and tuba players, the bass drummer watching the crescent moon, and the mushroom boots.

  • Gordon,

    Excellent series of photos.

  • impossible!!!!

    LArry Towell publised color photos!!

    The world ends…

  • ok, there are from Towell’s collecion….

    The world is safe…

  • Thanks for the feedback all.
    The beach shindig is the annual birthday party for Barb Green, a long time resident of Lasqueti. I think she was 84. That is her house in the photo.
    Lasqueti is a magical place. I managed to spend about three weeks there this past summer.

  • Gordon – Incredible party. Excellent pix. Yes, I see what you mean by your “wonderful life.”

  • Gordon; hopefully all taken with your Zorki? ;-)

  • Browsing through BURN.02…

    I do not have the time right now to really dig into it, but since I drove 13 hours yesterday, 5 of them to go and pick it up, I’ve sat down and had a quick look at it this morning..

    It is a book, it looks and feels and smells like a book, not a magazine, the quality is great, and while there have been props to DAH, Diego and Anton so far, I gotta say the designer Andrea Barbato deserves a high five big time also!

    The work.. I wish there was more.. it’s so good.. when I came to the last page I just wanted it to go on.. I know I will go explore more of it when I have time, and I know I will go visit exhibits and/or buy monographs of at least 2/3 of the photographers, hands dowm.

    Something to cherish, that is for sure. Thanks again to all those who have made it possible to TOUCH and FEEL it!

  • GORDON. Is there a Wicker man lurking somewhere near?

  • EVA,

    you found the right words!

    …and I love to pick the names and find the right selfportrait to it. Some, I recognized immediately, for some, I needed to count.
    I am sure, this copy will suffer, as I will carry it with me and show it to many people during the next days.

    This is the real thing!

  • a civilian-mass audience

    the comment of the month goes to SIDNEYYYYYY!!!

    “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”
    a bottle of ouzo …(only pick up)

    EVA…thank you as PAUL says…” there is not enough money in the world to pay back your kindness”

    GORDON…I love them all…say hi to MARTHA and can you bring your mom and baby GISELLE in…:)?
    if you don’t mind…

    BURNIANS…YOU are all Amazing!

  • GORDON! :))))))))))))))

    GOD-damn…that IS where i want to be !!!!!!….Ontario and t-dot has nothing on BC…and i thought i went wild last year at NS/Cape Breton….can i get an invite PLEASE! :))))

  • EVA

    in Perpignan, if you replay the tape, you will notice i gave credit to Andrea…and he is well credited in 02 itself of course….a most brilliant designer …..when i give credit to Diego i am also automatically giving credit to Andrea Barbato…those two did it….i plan to work with both men again…just great to work with, just great….


    saw you were looking for me on skype, i responded (finally) but then never saw you come back…IF you do indeed want a chat, now is the time…after next week i will disappear again for awhile…hope we can talk


    terrific looking gathering…nice little essay actually…

    cheers, david

  • David..

    I would never want to imply you didn’t credit him, elswhere or in the book.. all I’m saying is that looking even quickly at 02 it becomes clear that there’s been a brilliant design work done, it’s something I’ve noticed with the other things I’ve mentioned.. that’s all. Nice work all around, very nice..

  • David,

    Honored for the inclusion of my self-portrait in the inside cover of Burn.02. The book looks very good indeed. Will be ordering asap.

    As I mentioned on Skype, I’m on course to be in the US for the first couple of weeks of November. Will have a bundle or prints and ideas I’d like to share with you in Brooklyn over a beer, should your schedule coincide with my visit.

    I’ve been working on something recently with the Asia Society you might like to view: http://sites.asiasociety.org/chinagreen/threatened-waters/

    All the Best from Beijing,

  • All

    marvelous self portraits, congrats!

  • David,

    Did you see my follow up email to your response?

  • a civilian-mass audience


    the Universe is working…!!!

    What not to Love!…you are all kissable(iouuu…):))))))))))))))))))))

  • Now that the self-portraits thru a window are posted here, once again here is the list of names from Diego. I cannot fathom why the extremely pedestrian mug shot of myself was included in this illustrious and creative group of photographers’ portraits, but I am honored and flattered to be in such good company.

  • To all the Burn crew…

    Thank you so much for including my selfportrait in Burn 02 it’s one hell of a mighty honour :)

    Now can someone tell me where is Diego’s post with the list of all Burnian’s self portrait included please?


    you were included because someone besides me had to represent those who remember Wooly Bully…watch me now, watch me now….

  • I count 58 names in the list but there appear to be 59 photos on the endpapers… looks like a name is missing from the group at bottom left… Diego?? Anybody??

  • Again, thanks all for looking, and for the feedback.

    Ross, no Zorki pics I’m afraid. All with the Fuji x100

    Bob B. (and everone else) you are welcome anytime, I’d love to show you around.

    Michael, I do love my life.
