@hariskakarouhas continues his takeover on @burndiary from Greece. Follow along as he continues sharing his images and process.

NEW ON BURN: Kaja Rata (@mokra_voda) presents, ‘Kajnikaj.’ She writes, “Sometimes it seems to me that everything is going to collapse. The houses, grey from soot, and the broken pavements will fall on the mine corridors below. I live in a small town in Silesia, and at some point there might have been something interesting going on here, but it was so long ago, that it is long since buried in memory. It is neither pretty nor ugly. There is no heritage of previous generations, not even any hint of flair in the current ones. If not for the dead mine shafts protruding from below, my town might be located anywhere. Or perhaps here and there...When I look at the sky over the decaying town, and when I build rickety contraptions I am trying to find means to escape from the place I was born and raised, even though I know that it is a futile attempt.” To see the rest of this essay, click the link in bio.

Welcome to @hariskakarouhas who will be taking over @burndiary from Greece over the next seven days. Follow along.

NEW ON BURN: Following @alainlaboile’s takeover on @burndiary, we present his longterm work about his family, ‘Quotidian.’ “In his giant outdoor studio where he controls space, time and light, Alain Laboile watches his six children. He captures moments of nothing, the unexpected as the expected, the blooming as the outbreak, imagination as banality. His tracking shots put everything on hold: the passage of time, the waltz of the clouds, the leaves in the wind. He shapes the humble material of everyday life like organic matter, enchanting it. It is certainly not paradise, nor the angels’ dream life. It is simply life; just life and nothing else.” To see the rest of ‘Quotidian,’ click the link in bio.

Today is @alainlaboile’s final day taking over @burndiary. Head over to the page to see his full week of photos before our next takeover.

@alainlaboile continues his takeover on @burndiary, documenting his six children in rural France.

NEW ON BURN: Brooklynn Kascel (@brooklynn.kascel) presents Fear/Loving : A personal narrative of aging, intimacy and separation.
She writes, "Growing older, we begin to break the mold of our inherent innocence, realizing that few things last forever. Losing the image we previously had of ourselves, we continue to tirelessly and obsessively look through our individual narratives, desperate to detect what may have gone wrong. An unavoidable and often paralyzing feeling begins to take hold, just as light fades among the trees, so do our past selves and past experiences. To find solace, we search among nature, vices, people – anchoring ourselves to something in order to cope." To see the rest of this essay, click the link in bio.

Welcome to @alainlaboile who will be taking over @burndiary from France during the next week. Follow along.

NEW ON BURN: Bayu Wira Handyan (@wirahandyan) presents ‘Three Weeks, Melancholia.’ He writes, “My work presents the questions about existence of life and the things related with solitude. The solitude that causes feelings of anxiety, worry, and fear that led to a melancholia. My pictures are a result of myths that exist in my culture and surrealist things that appear from my fantasies.” To see the rest of this essay, click the link in bio.

@fiona_lark continues her @burndiary takeover from The Lake District in northern England.

Welcome to @fiona_lark who will be taking over @burndiary over the next week from northern England. Follow along.

NEW ON BURN: @joanalvado presents ‘Cuban Muslims, Tropical Faith.’ He writes, “Cuba is one of the last countries in the world where Islam has entered. Although is still widely unknown, the number of Cubans embracing Islam has constantly increased in the recent years. This growth is strongly linked with the current scenario of changes in Cuba, which includes a higher tolerance towards religions.
With a current population around 3.000, Cuban Muslims are present in several districts of La Habana but also have expanded to many other provinces, like Camagüey, Santiago or Varadero. The growth of this community is strongly linked with the current scenario of changes in Cuba, which includes a higher tolerance towards religions.” To see the rest of this essay click the link in bio.
