Lucía and Mailén at home

I’m Alejandro Kirchuk, @akirchuk, and this is my last post for this Burn Diary. I’ve been sharing some stories from Argentina, as well as some daily life photos here in Scotland, after 2 months of becoming a father. This is now for almost a full-time stuff, and I’m happy I’m doing it this way. I would like to specially thank to @diegorlando for inviting me and to @davidalanharvey for creating this beautiful project that allow us photographers to know new authors all the time, from all over the planet. In this photograph, Lucía and Mailén at home, this morning. #burndiary #burnmagazine #finalpost Photo by @akirchuk for Burn Diary

Leaving London

Lucía gets ready to leave London and come back to Edinburgh. We survived our first trip with the little one. These days it’s getting almost impossible to photograph anything else than my family, but I always enjoy seeing and photographing the stuff around me. #burndiary #burnmagazine Photo by @akirchuk for @burndiary


This is @akirchuk, in my day-4 of my week posting images for BurnDiary. Today, we travelled to London to give our daughter the Argentine nationality. Going out with a almost-2-months old baby in a freezing place is such an adventure. Travelling is almost an impossible, but we finally made it and Mailen is an Argentine girl born in Scotland. Here, Lucía at our bedroom in Edinburgh, before leaving. #burndiary #burnmagazine Photo by @akirchuk

Lucìa getting ready to go out

Photograph by @akirchukLess than two months after being a father, life happens mainly indoors, at home. We talk with my wife a lot about time: how is possible that time evaporates so quickly, so interceptibly, in many senses. This morning, she said to me a few things about this, where does the time go. I never believed very much in time as a regular timeline, not in life, much less in photography and storytelling. In this image, Lucía this morning, getting ready to go out. #burndiary #burnmagazine #abouttimePhoto by @akirchuk


In this day-3 of my burndiary, I wanted to post a kind of tourist photo of the city that adopted me for a while. I have to say that Edinburgh is such an special place, an intriguing city, with some dark and bright sides. I’m not a tourist anymore here, so it was difficult I guess to make a kind-of-tourist shot, but maybe this photograph would represent how I see part of the charm of this town. #burndiary #burnmagazine #edinburghPhoto by @akirchuk
