Photo-main

A series of images about the art/artist and love on the playa at Burning Man. To be in book form. Quotes from all the artist included.

2010 Burning Man

I photographed most of the art and artist of that years event.  Metropolis

I need to finish it and upload it onto a book site. I need to find a publisher and manifest this books completion.  It celebrates the love and art of Burning Man and its all shot on real film, 4x5 and 120 as well as some digital files. This book is about the ART and the Artist, full pages sharing love on the playa.  BM foundation will need to approve the project for final publication.  However all patrons can purchase a copy off the Blurb.com site for my purchase price.  It a one off site so its print on demand.   Book will be dedicated to the artist and crews that work so hard to bring all the projects to the playa for public to enjoy.

Help me complete this project by funding the final phase.  I featured rewards for your help so if you can I'd be grateful.

thank you

PATRONS NEEDED Kickstarter


Foreword by Michael Christian

This project needs completion and patronage will help to bring it to light.  
I returned from 2010 Burning Man and parked all shot film, hundreds of rolls and 4x5 sheet film in my darkroom.  I basically experienced and huge depression and lack of funds just let this project to to the way side.  I wished I was a lousy photographer as I would just burn it all, but alas I know theirs some real GEMS and amazing people in this book project. I photographed most of the art on the Playa with a pinhole camera.  All the artist with 120 or digital.  My plan is to make a self published book for starters.  Artist featured on the left with a quote of inspiration by such artist.  Pinhole image of the art made on the right.  Spreads will be hot and sexy, funny, as much about love as possible.   Humor is a big part of my vision as well so...with that the book will be a celebration of the artist, art, crews and the Burning Man experience from a very positive capture.   I need help to complete it.  I would love for one big check to arrive but it hasn't yet so I am reaching out to my community to say ... if you can....I'd appreciate all the green to make it come to light.  Thank you so very much.  You can see my last books on this link.   http://www.blurb.com/search/site_search?search=karen+kuehn
