Art of Burning Man by NK Guy

Every year the Black Rock Desert in Nevada turns into Black Rock City, a fully functional metropolis that houses over 65,000 short-term residents.

This is the site of Burning Man. A seven-day desert rave event filled with mind-blowing art installations, dust storms and free spirits.

Now Taschen has recently published an exciting large-format book gathering 16 years of the desert festival in 280 pages of spectacular photography. Named 'Art of Burning Man', the coffee-table text is created by Canadian writer and photographer NK Guy.
