Will Roger, the first Director of Operations of Burning Man and a founding board member of Black Rock City, is publishing a book that traces the history and transition of the now world-famous event. Starting with a few thousand revelers in the late 1990s and growing into an expansive city that supports over 70,000 unique citizens every summer, the new book chronicles the ever-changing cityscape and transformation Burning Man. 

Titled Compass of the Ephemeral: Aerial Photography of Black Rock City through the Lens of Will Roger, the comprehensive book shows off the unprecedented grandeur of the event from the sky. The book also includes interpretive essays that explore the physical, cultural and artistic context and impact of the Burning Man event.

“Burning Man is a blank canvas for people to come and create on,” says Rodger. “Burning Man creates human empathy, then serendipity and creativity happens. Burning Man is the real world; everything else is the default world. People come away with changed lives and a changed culture because at Burning Man, everyone is human . . . there is no class, no color. You become family: human family, world family, global family.”

The book is scheduled for release on June 18. Pre-order here.

Support Rollie, like you viewers keep PBS alive Bitcoin: qrk7qz2h3nr3kax22cxh7m8qsyy9demt2ynt5ql75y Every great magic trick consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called "The Pledge". The magician shows you something ordinary: a deck of cards, a bird or a man. He shows you this object. Perhaps he asks you to inspect it to see if it is indeed real, unaltered, normal. But of course... it probably isn't. The second act is called "The Turn". The magician takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you're looking for the secret... but you won't find it, because of course you're not really looking. You don't really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn't clap yet. Because making something disappear isn't enough; you have to bring it back. That's why every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call "The Prestige"."
