The world through the lens of a new photographer each week with @burndiary
To see more photo essays each week from contributing photographers around the world, follow @burndiary on Instagram and visit the Burn Magazine website.
When the curators of Burn Magazine, an online journal for emerging photographers, decided to start @burndiary in July 2013, they opted for a single strategy: to have a new photographer take over each week and publish a photographic diary of life around them.
“The beauty of @burndiary is that it’s a real essay in real time,” says Burn Magazine founder and photographer David Alan Harvey (@davidalanharvey). “You’re seeing it raw. People who can produce great images on a day-to-day basis on demand like this are very rare, but we get people in on the process.”
Mentoring photographers has been at the center of Harvey’s career as an assignment photographer, instructor and member of the Magnum Photos (@magnumphotos) agency. “I’ve always thought elevating the craft was a good thing,” says David. “Anyone who knows me knows I always share my secrets. On Burn, people can be part of a community and learn something useful to them. We’re all about photo education. What we’re doing on Instagram is all part of that.”
Excited that Instagram and Burndiary is showing me love today on Instagram.

The Week on Instagram | 125
Around the Community
Children playing in the park, Tel Aviv
Mutasim Ali, moments before he goes in front of a district court judge in Tel Aviv, Israel. He is appealing his “invitation” to Holot detention center. In December of 2013, The Knesset added a new amendment to the anti-infiltration law, that allows the detention of African asylum seekers indefinitely.
Holot is a detention center located in the Negev desert, a two hour drive from Tel Aviv. Once in Holot the detainees have two options, to either voluntarily return to their country of origin, or stay in Holot indefinitely. Since January about 1,700 African Asylum seekers have been forced to quit their jobs, leave their community and transfer to Holot.
Mutasim is the first to appeal the administrative processes of receiving an “invitation” to Holot, without a due process or hearing. For four and a half years Mutasim has called Tel Aviv home, he speaks fluent Hebrew and is the CEO of ARDC (a non-for profit organization). As the CEO of ARDC, Mutasim is in the forefront of advocating for more than 50,000 African asylum seekers in Israel. His case was dismissed by the judge, and he will not be allowed a hearing. Mutasim will be sent to Holot detention center in 30 days.
