Hamburger Eyes began as a small xeroxed zine, turned into a magazine, and has evolved into a publisher. Publishing since 2001, they have “developed” their own signature brand of photography and provided an outlet for both upcoming and established photographers worldwide.


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, the photographers share their travels and experiences. As a photo diary, they share accomplishments and heartaches. And as a photo album, they share their families and friends and reach people on a level they have been familiar with since their first birthday party. Hamburger Eyes has contributions from photographers of all levels. Inspired by the traditions that began with National Geographic and Life Magazine, they hope to revitalize the sensation of photography as a craft as well as a tool to record and document.


Hamburger Eyes has been collecting printing and binding equipment over the years. They could now produce their own books, zines, and magazines without the dependance on advertising dollars or the pressures of offset print shop minimums. They are able to put out more photos more often more efficiently.

Hamburger Eyes has recently teamed up with friends to open an online retail store specifically for zines. Products created by Hamburger Eyes and friends can all be purchased on one safe and secure website. They hope to grow the site to become a one stop shop for all of your favorite zine publishers.
