Hamburger Eyes began as a small xeroxed zine in 2001, turned into a magazine, and has now evolved into a publisher. Their first book 'Inside Burgerworld' was published by Powerhouse in 2007
"When opening Hamburger Eyes Photo Magazine you enter a pictorial history of both the unseen and iconic moments of everyday life. It is organized in such a way that it has become many things to many people. As a photo journal, we share our travels and experiences. As a photo diary, we share our accomplishments and heartaches. And as a photo album, we share our families and friends and reach people on a level they have been familiar with since their first birthday party. We have contributions from photographers of all levels. Inspired by the traditions that began with National Geographic and Life Magazine, we hope to revitalize the sensation of photography as a craft as well as a tool to record and document" Ray Potes Hamburger Eyes founder
