Burgun's broad range of photographic interest show a man in control. But it's his work in portraiture and nudes that I find most compelling. Gothic and subversive in their content, each image is a challenge. Burgun explores our relationships with male identity, love and religion. All big subjects and he never pulls his punches. Many of his images are assertions, even exclamations that force you to evaluate the symbols and symbolism we live with every day.
