Burn My Eye Collective photographers will have their work on show as part of the Brussels Street Photography Festival 2017 exhibition program along with Fragment Photo Collective and the festival's Guests, from October 4th, to October 7th, 2017 at Muntpunt gallerie in the center of Brussels.

BME will be represented in the show by its members Zisis Kardianos and Barry Talis who during the festival will conduct a 3-day Street Photography Workshop and will also participate in numerous of the festivals' other events, such as Photo Walks, Portfolio Reviews and Discussion Panels.




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

Burn My Eye street photography workshop in Barcelona, 13-15 October 2017

Burn My Eye members Pau Buscató  and Dimitris Makrygiannakis will come together in the streets of Barcelona, a city of special importance to both. 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).
