We at Burn My Eye are excited to announce that photographer Pau Buscató has joined our collective.
Pau is originally from Barcelona and currently based in Oslo (Norway), where he moved in 2009. He walks the streets looking for those poetic accidents that sometimes take place in the most mundane situations. He likes to play with ideas imaginatively, often with a subtle touch of humor and he invites an illogical dimension to infiltrate in his pictures thus subverting our everyday realities.

At a time of natural reflection on the year's past events, we have decided to put a collective spin on our individual photographic highlights.
Burn My Eye member Simon Kossoff, is presenting his States Project; Kansas on Lenscratch.
Simon's "photographs are the search for a kind of personal orientation, between the dream or idea of a place and his actual experience of it in reality. Tangled with personal symbolism, Kossoff’s photographs are a psychogeography, a journey which explores the destination."
