Hilarious yet scary, hardcore yet charming, the Hamburger Eyes crew put out the illest lil’ photography magazine the world has ever seen. Since the first issue of 30 xeroxed pamphlets was printed in 2002, Hamburger Eyes has become an elegant yet underground periodical combining the documentary approach of National Geographic with the hit-’em-hard sensibility of a late-night tagger.

A pictorial history of both the intimate and iconic moments of everyday life, Hamburger Eyes is a travel journal, a personal diary, and a family album. Inspired by the traditions that began with Life magazine and Robert Frank, the magazine revitalizes the sensation of photography as a craft as well as a tool to record and document.

Now, in their first book, Hamburger Eyes: Inside Burgerworld, they put you through the grinder with a selection of photographs by magazine masterminds Ray Potes, David Potes, Stefan Simikich, and Jason Roberts Dobrin, as well as regular contributors Ted Pushinsky, Dave Schubert, Boogie, David Uzzardi, Tobin Yelland, Ryan Furtado, and countless other upstarts. Get ready for photography on the loose.

About the Author:

Ray Potes has been making pictures for the past 20 years. At age 14, he made his first ’zine; today, Potes edits and publishes Hamburger Eyes magazine. Based in San Francisco, Potes is a publisher, producer, filmmaker, and, most of all, a photographer.

From Publishers Weekly:

Starred Review. This fierce, moving collection of black and white images from underground photography magazine Hamburger Eyes (founded 2002) is proof positive that Diane Arbus's artistic descendents are alive, well and snapping photographs in a dark alley near you. Featuring the edgiest work of a gritty, gutsy group (including magazine founder Potes, Ted Pushinsky, Matt Weber and fellow PowerHouse author Boogie), this important volume demonstrates the new generation's sharp eye for everyday tragedy, irony and flat-out comedy. Each photographer has his own areas of interest-amputees, brawlers, distressed nightclub-goers, graffiti-but the faces of the poor, drug-ravaged and down-trodden are ultimately the most affecting. The magazine bills itself as "the continuing story of life on earth," and these thought-provoking photographs deliver-though "life on earth" in this case means, for the most part, city-life on earth. A decidedly macho streak is at work throughout-notably, no female photographers are included-and there's barely any text to speak of (in a parting letter, Potes refers not to readers but "viewers"). Still, those riding the pop culture zeitgeist just left of the mainstream-think fans of HE or Vice magazines-will delight in these full-bleed shots; don't be surprised if you can't look away.
