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.”

Cory Doctorow, author and activist
