In this updated edition with fresh images, writer and photographer NK Guy
presents 16 years of Burning Man art. His dazzling images record these
participatory, collective, intrinsically ephemeral installations and happenings in the
desert, which exist for no clearer purpose than because someone wanted to express
something. The result is testimony to a realm far beyond the ego, commerce, and
power play of mainstream cultural output: it is one of the most pure, uninhibited,
expressive centers of our time.
