Playing with Bella. #Mompiche, #Ecuador @ivankphoto, @runa_photos]]>
Hello! I’m Ivan Kashinsky (@ivankphoto). I’m super stoked to be posting for BURN this week. Please stay tuned as I share a slice of life from Ecuador. It’s an exciting time for us! Our family is visiting and we are celebrating summer, family, and the new life that we have brought into this crazy world. Hope you enjoy the ride! Thanks! Mompiche Dreams. Karlita and Nahuelito sleep in #Mompiche, a fishing village on the coast of #Ecuador.]]>
If you are in the U.S., happy 4th of July from the Harvey family. If you are not in the U.S. you don’t care. We are not really sitting around celebrating independence. Nope. It’s just a central summer holiday with no pressure and summer love and hot dogs and no bye bye American pie. Pretty chill. Anyway have a great day wherever you may be.#obx #july]]>
Cover of Leica’s M Magazine featuring some of my Brazil work. This from Salvador, Bahia. Rio and Bahia have been favorites of mine for awhile now. Both featured in NatGeo. Rio the source of one book and another upcoming. If a photographer or any artist gets locked into a place, there must be a reason. If the “reason” is only in your imagination, so much the better. #Brazil #bahia #leica]]>

Death in Venice
play this essay
“I love the smell of urine in the morning, it reminds me of North Venice beach. The first place in America where a woman could wear a bathing suit in public, a man could go without a hat, where a person could pee in public without being arrested. The place where Kerouac, Burrows and John Wilber spoke while Charlie Parker played saxophone, where Morrison and Krieger pondered the doorway to the other side, where Charlie Chaplin built a ginger bread court for his mother, and W.C. Fields one for himself. Where you could get alcohol during prohibition, heroin during the fifties and sixties, crack in the eighties, and Meth in the new millennium. Where art meets crime. Where Arnold made pumping iron into Gold. Where you can see a man balance a stove on his chin while juggling chain saws. Break-dancing, roller-skating, and of course skate boarding. The slum by the sea, Dog Town.”
– Robin G. Brown
“Panos did not go to Venice Beach to take pictures. He was already there. There was no escape. Locked down. Stuck. California dreaming.
Narcissistic, sarcastic, irreverent, hedonistic, decadent, satiric, ironic, paranoid, and flat out soulful, Panos is at the center of his own photographs. This is a good sign, for he lives inside his own work. Bring the boy another beer.
Death in Venice is a collection, a kaleidoscope, a myriad of mirrors, a massive mind spinning vortex. Get a grip on it. Or not. He doesn’t care.
– David Alan Harvey / Magnum Photos

Burning pages, one by one. A devoted man gets some help to discard schoolbook pages where Allah’s name appear, in the appropriate way. day #9 @dakiloulou for @burndiary #burn #fire #allah #jerusalem #burndiary]]>

An ultra-orthodox Jewish man walks by a building site with posters showing what will be: ‘To live at the peak, to be as close as can be’. Sounds so good, who would not want just that? Humans will keep doing their best to destroy this city. day #8 @dakiloulou for @burndiary #build #poster #jewish #ultraorthodox #jerusalem #burndiary]]>

FujiFilm/Young Talent Award 2015 runner up

The Bloodline is a chapter designated by the gang of the Latin Kings to the State of New York. The Latin Kings is one of the largest and most organized gangs in America with more than 35,000 active members.
This Photo Essay focuses on documenting not only the extreme life conditions for the majority of gang members but also the relation between gang members and society. It explores the intimacy and naivety of teenagers who have been pushed by their economic status, racial or social issues to survive in a hostile environment in one of the most developed cities in the world. It also draws attention to the happiness, unity and respect they show each other and the importance of the family and religion in their lives.
As a Colombian, I am aware of the political and social situations of my country, and am familiar with the culture and their way of life. I am drawn to people who have to live in extreme conditions, and the risks they take to be capable of maintaining their economic status. The stressors behind why they create or get involved in gangs and what their purpose is. In my work I endeavor to show my point of view of social and cultural issues, often referencing South and Latin American urban conflicts such as drug dealing, narco-traffic, gangs and corruption.
I feel inspired by the efforts of these teenagers seeking for a community that understands them and supports them, and how they find the answer to this questions in Gangs, a community that forces them to juggle between being a teenager and surviving in the concrete jungle.
Nicolas Enriquez was born in the city of Cali-Colombia in 1993, he graduated from the Photojournalism and Documentary Photography program at The International center of Photography in 2014.
His most influential work The Bloodline documenting the Latin Kings gang has helped him to develop an interest in Urban conflict, political and human rights issues.
He currently works as a freelance photographer for the New York Daily News and his work has been published in different media outlets such as The New York Times, American Photography, Getty images, PROOF, NY Daily News.
FujiFilm/EPF Young Talent Award is an additional grant for photographers under 25. Using David Alan Harvey’s words “A heart felt thank you also to FujiFilm for making it possible for the EPF to keep focus on the future generations, the young ones, the ones with a vision already making a mark now… and just might make another jump soon…”
