Burning Man 2010 Metropolis
Burning Man 2010, Metropolis, is the start of my second decade at Black Rock City. After going 10 years with out a break I took last year off. To be honest I wasn't planning of going this year but I had an opportunity to work while I was there and who could say no to a gig at Burning Man. I was hired by Enviromedia to produce a series of images for their Enviro blog. My assignment was to look for images that communicate the environmental resourcefulness and unique qualities of Black Rock City and it's citizens. It was a welcome challenge for me to engage my photographic experience of Burning Man beyond just what I find interesting or engaging. You can find a link to the Enviroblog post here. This second decade also marks a significant change in my photographic approach. I switched from shooting entirely on film to digital. It's hard to say exactly how much it impacted photography but I believe it was significant. I found it freed me up in many ways. Not only in the capturing of the image but also in the processing and treatment of the final images. The following is a concise selection of digital images I was able to acquire this year. Enjoy.
