I’m very exited to announce that I’m joining the Burn My Eye street photography collective. It’s a great honour as BME consists of this wonderful group of photographers. I’m looking forward to all the collaborative projects yet to come.
Today it was officially announced on the Burn My Eye website. Photo by Peter Boer.
Burn My Eye
The collective was established in 2011 after its founders had been working together for some time, many of them are administrators of the infamous Hardcore Street Photography group on Flickr (over 80,000 members). Over the years they’ve added other members to the collective, and there are currently 20 members from all over the globe.
Burn My Eye has gained international recognition due to its collection of striking and at times untraditional photography, its exhibitions, workshops and group projects. Members of the collective also occasionally create series on various themes from the group’s work, including both still photography and videos.
Burn My Eye’s vision
“In a world huddling under a constant deluge of throwaway imagery BME seeks to provide thoughtful and informed photographic consideration of our circumstances, a way to see past superficiality and pretension, to burn through society’s veneer and truly see.”
