Once a year, at the close of summer, from the barren clay of the Nevada desert rises a temporary city.
Dust storms and extreme weather. Towering art installations on a vast canvas like no other.
This is Burning Man.
“Burning Man is visually impossible: there is no way the eye can make
sense of it all, nor can your memory of its sights untangle every
wonder and blaze. NK’s photos use an artist’s eye and a camera’s lens
to unpick the tight-knotted, intense visual experience. He has frozen
instants of Burning Man magic with a lavishness and faithfulness that
will have you tasting playa dust.”
Introducing Art of Burning Man, published by TASCHEN.
Art of Burning Man documents a decade and a half of incredible site-specific art
from the annual Burning Man festival. Created by writer and photographer
NK Guy, this exciting large-format book celebrates the work of hundreds
of artists who have created the most unmissable art event
on the planet.
The book is now widely available in Europe, and is shipping
in North America from taschen.com.
Later this summer it’ll be available from other good booksellers across the world.
