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)

Pau’s hometown (currently living in Oslo) and Dimitris’ photographic home the last 4 years (living in Stockholm but visiting Barcelona frequently), Barcelona is a street photographer’s paradise, with a very lively vibe and events/happenings in public spaces on a constant basis, especially during weekends when the workshop will take place.

The workshop will start on the evening of Friday the 13th with portfolio reviews and presentations/discussions about street photography, continuing during the weekend with shooting in the days, and editing/discussions in the night. Expect a quite intensive programme, with long hours of shooting and editing/discussing as well. There will be a follow-up of participants' progress with a Skype Session 6 months after the workshop.

Maximum 10 persons.

Workshop fee 400 Euros, early bird discount 300 Euros (until July 30).

Pau Buscató (1975) often shoots in big cities like Barcelona, London or NYC, where he is constantly looking for those poetic accidents that convert a mundane situation into something special. He has received recognition from various international photography festivals and competitions. His work has been part of exhibitions around the world, and it's been featured in various online and printed publications, including David Gibson's latest book '100 Great Street Photographs.

Chronotope: Black and White Analogue Photography is a collection of photographers whose vision and style embody a time-space experience. Masterful compositions embrace emotional purity, spontaneous energy, and vast potential. The tension captured in each moment is magnetic—the unbreakable stillness of time halted overlaps a defiant space bursting with life— seemingly unready and unwilling to accept its fate as a memory of the past.

Pau Buscató joins Burn My Eye

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.

Simon Kossoff's The States Project; Kansas on Lenscratch

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."
