Burn. Baby. Burn.

Do you like photography? Even if this is your first visit to my little blog you know I do. I love it, in fact. What better way to start another week than to study some beautiful visual work?

One place that you must visit is the website for Burn magazine. I'm not sure why I haven't mentioned this site here before since it's a daily visit for me. Burn is an evolving journal for emerging photographers curated by Magnum photographer, and (one of) my personal photography hero, David Alan Harvey. He doesn't know it but he is my mentor. His work is so evocative...it motivates me and inspires me beyond words. In fact, words aren't even necessary...they are irrelevant. You'd have to go look to see what I mean.

Today's post isn't about Mr. Harvey - it's about his magazine but he definitely deserves a place here so that's to come...

In the meantime, spend some time on Burn - it is impossible not to be moved by what you see there.
