burn magazine {Link}

Todays link is burn.  It's an online photo magazine created and edited by Magnum photographer David Alen Harvey with Anton Kusters as creative director.  It's probably best described by the people that actually run it, so here is the description in their own words.

"burn is an evolving journal for emerging photographers. burn was launched as an online magazine/journal on December 21, 2008, and is curated by Magnum photographer David Alan Harvey. We publish new stories or singles at least three times per week."

Photojournalism is really what got me interested in photography in the first place.  I wanted to be a war photographer.  A photographer taking pictures of events and people whose stories needed to be told.  It also seemed pretty exciting and rewarding, I mean have you seen War PhotographerJames Nachtwey is a true inspiration and one of my photographic heros. 

Anyway, I still love a good photo story, and burn has that in heaps.  It's a fantastic site to look around and get lost in the images.  Take a look around and remember how important photography can be.
