Barry Talis will join forces for a 3-day workshop with his colleague in BME Zisis Kardianos during the next Brussels Street Photography Festival coming October. Enrollments for the workshop still accepted but only a few more places are vacant.
Three members of the BURN MY EYE photography collective - Andrew Kochanowski from the United States, Junku Nishimura from Japan, and TC Lin from Taiwan - are joining forces to hold a three-day workshop in Taipei, Taiwan, this October. It will mark the collective's first such event in Asia.
Taipei, with its friendly people and dense network of meandering alleys hiding a rich blend of the ancient and the modern, is ideal for street photography, with a unique mix of the public and the private to be seen along the arcades fronting the ancient baroque facades of the old neighborhood.
The workshop will start on the morning of Saturday, October 7th, with portfolio reviews and presentations/discussions about street photography, followed by shooting during the daytime, and editing/discussions throughout the three-day period.
We will spend time photographing in and around the historic Tua Tiu Tiann area of Taipei, and give on-site feedback and guidance on subjects ranging from shooting to editing/sequencing, as well as reviews of student work, making for an excellent chance to explore and develop your vision. Selected photographic work from workshop students will also be printed for exhibition at a local gallery.
Workshop fee: NT$12,000/€340/US$400
(Early-bird price of NT9,000/€250/US$300 until August 31)
Dates: From Saturday, October 7 to Monday, October 9, 2017.
Location: No. 27 Yanping North Road, Section 2, Taipei
Participants: Limited to 15

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."
Burn My Eye member Zisis Kardianos was awarded the Public Prize for his series "In Limbo" in the Brussels Street Photography Festival 2016 (International Series Category).
The Public Prize is a result of a voting by all the visitors and fellow photographers during the first two days of the exhibition in Gallery Ravenstein in Brussels.
