Compass of the Ephemeral : Aerial Photography of Black Rock City Through the Lens of Will Roger
by Will Roger and Phyllis Needham and William Fox




Overview -
"Roger's photos turn the Burning Man festival itself into a piece of art." --John Przybys, Las Vegas Review Journal

Burning Man is a cultural celebration of the iconoclastic; a merger of art, thought, poetry, social awakening, and freedom. From its original inception through 2018, Nevada artist and Burning Man event co-founder Will Roger photographs the ever-changing cityscape and transformation of Black Rock City throughout the years.

A look at Black Rock City needs to reflect the spirit of Burning Man. This book contains a substantial collection of aerial photos as never seen before, which is a photographic collaboration between Will Roger and Burning Man architect Rod Garrett, but it becomes even more with the Introduction by Burning Man co-founder Harley Dubois, and poetry and essay contributions from Independent scholar William Fox and Archaeologist Alexei Vranich.

"This book provides some insight and documentation into the development and growth of the temporary metropolis that is created and disappears each year on Nevada's Black Rock Desert. It tells the story of growth, community engagement and artistic interaction." --James Gabriel Martin, Lonely Planet
