the pitch: to the point..BURN.01 is available for online purchase as of now…yes, i am selling this new book and proud of it…the best work of the audience here on Burn is featured along with a smattering of iconic legends….25 photo essays by both legends and emerging photographers alike… and two thought provoking  text pieces…..above, holding copies of the 300 page, printed in Italy, collector edition (1000 copies) are my students from the loft workshop which i do every year right here…frankly, a typical class for me and my Burn demographic….the best of times for all…the photographers above will present their work on Friday evening right after the Bruce Davidson show right here in my apartment…see announcement below..

the are two choices below for payment…editions are the same…we just are trying to keep the shipping costs to you as low as possible in the same way we priced out the production quality and sales price…this is a good deal..no businessmen among us..

even though BURN 01 is not inexpensive, it is the very best we could do,  and even at this price the only way we could do this special edition was with support from a few individual donors here, who prefer to remain anonymous….the donors here go un-named but they have been dream donors….zero requests…..they like Burn as it is and fund for that reason….and one of the most generous donors is from the readership here, whom i have never even met, nor Anton…no questions, no interview….

so both Anton and i are very proud of our businesses relationship between you and us….hell, everybody works for free…Anton Kusters, Haik Mesropian, Anna Barry Jester, Diego Orlando, Mike Courvoisier, Kerry Payne, Michelle Smith, Germana Lavagna, …hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of theoretically salaried work…no joke….these are smart folks….so i gotta pay em……eventually…sooner rather than later…and , oh yes, do not forget we pay the photographers who are published on Burn…..

so please, if you feel anything about Burn at all, sponsor this book and help us out in whatever way you can..damn, this has been a ride from the beginning ..right? anybody who knows Burn from the outside/inside knows that we are an open book…….our crew worked hard…Anton on design of course, Diego rode the presses watching over every detail, Anna did all the research etc…everybody did their bit

here is my belief:

i think YOU will make BURN 01  a classic just by buying it….1000 copies in the first edition…so, c’mon help revolutionize the biz just by buying BURN 01…think about it….rightfully and respectfully honors the icons, but mostly celebrates the young leading edge photographers of tomorrow…who can argue with that one?

i do hope to see some of you, but not all of you, at the Davidson/student/Burn 01 launch (see below)…i will give you the show of shows….but then again, i will bet you already know that….

  • I look too fat and my bandana is gone..
    Ahhhhh…the rooftop:)

  • Bought! Possibily number 1? =)

  • Just a quick note actually, 65 euro for a book may seem a lot, but I truly see this as the future for our industry. We need to look at alternatives and work with our patrons, which in many ways the donors are. Its a return to a very old way of working, people who appreciate work, will pay for it, but are not in it for profit. Non-Profit photojournalism, photographers earning a working wage through the generosity of others.

    And at the end of the day while my money may go towards another photographer this month/week/year maybe next year/week/month I will be on the other side.

    Its a two way street and I hope we can all meet somewhere in the middle for a nice cup of coffee, a chat and some amazing photos.

    Looking forward to getting my copy!

  • most expensive photo book I ever bought (for myself). That, is a revolution too. :-)

  • Burn 01 heading way down south !

    Would love to be on that roof top at the end of the week
    It looks like a great place for a beer….

    The fact that it cost more to ship the book than it does
    to buy the book show why we need more revolution !

    Looking forward to my own roof top party when it arrives.

  • The book is beautiful, both in production quality and content. Congratulations to all the fine folk who produced it and all the wonderful photographers and writers who were appear in it. Fantastic work all around.

  • Very much looking forward to leafing through some Hi-Caliber photography in Hi-Gloss! Well done Burnians…..Burn On!

    Some day I will break free of the West, set foot in New York city and join the party…until then tip one back for the rest of us!

    Cheers, Jeremy

  • Ordered my copy, can’t wait to see it. I sincerely wish I could be there this friday, but it is unlikely…too many calendar commitments…

    Many hugs and warm wishes and good karma to all who can make it, though….and to those, like me, who wish they could…


  • I have been lucky to see the “dummy” at Lookbetween in June. Great stuff! Congratulations to all and thanks for the so so hard work to make it possible.

    I just ordered my copy – straight from Italy, I guess. DAH, you might want to check on the backend of e-junkie, because the money has been charged from my card, but it is not being claimed from your side. So the whole procedure is pending … and pending … and I want my book! :)

    Congrats again! Great stuff! Who would have thought this while we were riding RoadTrips two(+) years ago?!

    Good night BURNworld. Time for bed here in Germany.

  • ….:))))))

    just bought my copy :)))))….

    and Akaky, i’ll make sure i read your essay, now read mine ;))

    hugs all


  • Yea! Just purchased it. Can’t wait. Hope it is waiting for me when I return home at the end of the month. I am sure it will be a kick ass show too David.

  • as to the fiesta….well, marina’s giving a talk on friday, so i’ll be home celebrating via skype and wine…if you want :)))

    we can skype the party :)))


  • Postage outstrips the price of the book total comes to over 100 Australian dollars in total and the dearest world wide along with NZ………. wrong side of the world here

  • Just ordered my copy…. dang I better get on those bookshelves for the dining room!

  • Can’t wait to recieve my copy. Love the rooftop pic, I can feel the energy, would love to be there.

    David, Anton, thanks for being/doing burn. It is the highlight of my day.

  • actually I was going to spend the beer money, that would have gone to the gambling habit, that would have gone to pay the mortgage, but oh, well.

  • awaiting moderation? I’m buying the book, checkin out, ok?

  • can’t talk now, money is where my mouth is right now. bought the book.

  • good going.

  • DAH,…or who-ever shot that group shot, I just gotta mention, coming from a portrait guy, that is a masterful shot.

  • I look (am) too fat in that photo.. and bandana is gone with the wind…:)


    The Roof, the Roof(top) is on fire!!!!
    Burn.01 wrote history today:)

  • My best use of PayPal all year.

    Great stuff David & co… great f’n stuff.


  • I just started reading this superb blog, and I also just started getting into Bruce Davidson’s fantastic body of work.

    I’m not sure how this event works, but I’d love to attend! Will Burn copies be available at the event for purchase?

    What should I bring? =)

  • Picking up my copy directly in Venice.. have a blast y’all on Friday, and thanks for not just having an idea, but making it the real thing!

  • Count me in. This is my first post on this website after lurking since its existence. Looking forward to seeing Bruce’s work and meeting you guys…

  • Jamie Maxtone-Graham

    Any online preview of ‘burn 01’? It would be fantastic to get a little taste.

    I am jealous of all those able to get to 475 Kent on Friday……

  • Ordered it. Looking forward to having and reading it.

  • a civilian-mass audience

    I can’t comment …my eye glasses…I can’t see…



  • yes+1
    Looking forward to receiving burn01. Congratulations to all.

  • Wow! What a revelation the group photo above is – these are all truly young people. They even look innocent!

    Except for Panos, of course.

    Placed my order. I was a little shocked when the shipping and handling fee got added in, then a little relieved when I discovered I had enough cash in my paypal account that I only had to fork up $17.98 fresh.

    Can’t wait to receive the book. Maybe I will wait to read it until the first really cold night settles in.

    I think it will be more enjoyable that way.

    With any luck, that could happen by the time the books arrives.

  • a civilian-mass audience

    it’s the first time that I am really happy to pay …shipping and taxes…:)))

    What not to LOVE !!!

  • Man the price of postage outsrips the book price total about 110 Australian,

  • civi – yes, to both advance the cause of burn and get to enjoy excellent photography…

  • man..1am in LA..but i cant stop celebrating NYC….Eastside god bless…from Westsiiiiiiiiiiiide:)

  • Imants I hear you on postage – I think it’s what the septics call ” Taking one for the team! ”
    Ouch but probably worth it – just choking on that final price…yes , got it!

  • You can thank the lovely and oh so talented sweetdistin for bringing me here via her twitter stream. I wonder if I’ve had my head in a cupboard for the last two years to miss all this going on, but I’m thrilled to have got here just in time for your first foray to physical book. Congratulations – happy to purchase something educational, informative, inspirational and beautiful. I’ve hit the ‘send money’ button, looking forward to the arrival of BURN01 but most of all, I’m delighted to have found you just in the nick of time!

  • damn..i wanna join but..my credit card just declined….scheming …how..how can i steal Burn01?

  • hmmmm..what if i visit the loft after midnight…everyone asleep…i still got the keys after all….
    yep…problem solved…taking the greyhound to brooklyn tomorrow…it will take me 7 days to get there..max..doable….ha ha..best idea ive ever had

  • Glenn it just pisses me off having to pay shipping companies their “we can charge whatever we want fees”

  • Hi Trapac :)
    Nice to see you here!

    Just ordered my copy (though the payment part is stuttering somewhat?).
    And thanks to all the hard work from those who have given so much time and energy to putting it together.
    Cannot wait.

  • bah, I land in NYC on the 23rd! but I’m out in vermont on the 24th till 27th before heading back to manhattan!

    Any chance of being able to pick a book up and avoiding all them nasty shipping charges?

  • A good atmosphere you have there in New York… Although I am a solitary person and world observer, I would very much like to join at least one of David’s camera club meetings in that famous Kibbutz loft… but I guess in order to qualify I would have to have a big 2.8 zoom lens, or at least leica m9???:)… or a ground shaking portfolio, or recommendations from Magnum or VII members… anyway, if everything moves pretty much like expected I should show up in New York in the middle or end of October… then I will try to contact that famous guy David Alan Harvey… Cheers
