BURN. A new media tool for photography + social content aggregation.

Burn is an evolving online journal for emerging photographers curated by Magnum photog David Alan Harvey. They have an annual Emerging Photographer Fund Grant in the amount of $10K.

Currently they are running a year long – group sourced Instagram feed portfolio experiment with Instagram: http://www.burnmagazine.org/dialogue/2013/07/burndiary/.  Each week, a different photographer will take over the BURN instagram, sharing and posting photos taken in real time, 1-2 photos a day. At the end of the year, there will be 52 different portfolios, each sourced by a different photo. The f account will be taken over the first week, starting June 31, by last year’s emerging photog fund winner Matt Lutton. Harvey sees Instagram as a tool not only for play but for serious photography- A great meld of traditional old style photographer using not only a new platform, but engaging it in social ways
