Once inhabited by Mormons, in 1849 Nauvoo was settled by followers of French utopian socialist ?tienne Cabet. His ideas attracted many people who saw him as a political messiah and sought to implement his ideas in a practical setting. In Nauvoo they created a theoretically egalitarian commune that was forced to disband in 1860 after it endured a loss of about 40% and ran into financial difficulties – © Marta Giaccone


A bear's skin is crucified on a house. It is the skin of the insomniac bear that came at night and ate the dogs, attacked people, and got into the house through the window. A married couple climbed the roof in panic and waited until the morning to neutralize the beast. They waited until morning because it is pitch-dark at night. There is only electricity in this settlement for 14 hours a day, in the morning and the evening. There is no central power supply service, only a small diesel-driven station.

Burn Magazine revolves around the EPF. It is our most important curatorial contribution to the oftentimes chaotic landscape of photography today. By choosing a jury whose lifetimes have been spent in looking at photographs and making photographs, we try to give our Burn readers a distilled version of the best work of all that flows before their eyes everyday.

Most importantly our mission is to give recognition to the finest emerging authors out there and to provide some funding to at least a few to keep going and to continue making a mark. With the support of the non-profit Magnum Foundation, $10,000 is given to the recipient of EPF to move forward in their work. Our previous winners prove this is not in vain.

In addition, Fujifilm is partnering with us to offer an award, open to all photographers who are 25 or younger at the time of the deadline. All you need to do is enter into the EPF… and if you’re 25 or younger, you’ll be automatically eligible for the Fujifilm Young Talent Award. Fujifilm offers a cash prize of $10,000 to the winner.

Of course we are immensely proud of this partnership… and hope in this way we can give back to the young emerging ones amongst us… who just might need it more than we can ever imagine.
