Will Roger, one of the festival’s founders

Black Rock City, the temporary metropolis built as part of Burning Man Festival each year, has grown exponentially since the event was founded in 1986. Will Roger, one of the festival’s six founders, has seen firsthand how it has transformed from a small camp, started on a San Francisco beach, into a veritable city perched on the edge of the Nevada desert, where more than 70,000 visitors flock each year. In Roger’s new book, Compass of the Ephemeral, the festival’s growth has been captured using drone and aerial photography, taken between the years 2005 and 2013.
