It's a compelling story, an amazing aesthetic, multi award winning imagery. Its the Temple, Its Burning Man. Be part of the story..

So far 'The Temple - Life and Death', has had an overwhelmingly positive response winning numerous international and domestic awards. We now want to bring it to a new level and we're hoping you love the imagery and want to get involved. The goal is to create a 112 page hard back coffee table book containing over 70 images captured at the Temple of Transition during the Burning Man Festival 2011. The exhibition will open in Dublin, Ireland, in October 2013 and travel to the USA thereafter. We want you to be part of this unique and amazing project. 

We have set out a series of rewards that we think make this exciting and unique project rewarding for everyone who gets involved. Scroll down to find out more about the stunning prints on offer. First though a little bit about how this body of work has already been received.

A selection of 'TheTemple - Life and Death' images have already seen Peter win European Photographer of the Year and a European Reportage Golden Camera. That's not all though. The work has also won Peter Irish Professional Photographer of the Year, Pictorial Photographer of the Year as well as best Travel and Pictorial Single Image with the Irish Professional Photographer Association. The response has been amazing and a great endorsement for the future of this project. Check out the award winning portfolio below.

After a great run of awards we want to get you involved to make this project happen. The rewards reflect the project goals and as such we are offering a personally signed copy of 'Life and Death - The Temple' as well as a series of fine art prints at various sizes. The book will be designed in Ireland by the amazingly creative team at me&him&you and printed in the most environmentally friendly way possible to the highest commercial standard's on Ireland's west coast. The prints on offer will all be individually created and signed by Peter to museum quality standards. A real piece of award winning Burning Man art for your home or as a gift for someone you love.

If your not able to get involved with this project by pledging please help spread the word by telling friends and family and sharing on social networks such as Facebook and Twitter. 

Without your backing this project may never see the light of day. Thanks for getting involved in any way possible. Its really appreciated.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Timing with any project is always a risk. The finished design of the book for example will be carried out in conjunction with Peter by professional designers. The printing of the book will also be undertaken by a separate print house. When dealing with a multitude of people there is always a risk that someone within the circle can drop the ball time wise and cause delays. This can often be out of the creators hands.

To ensure this risk is minimised I am dealing with designers and printers I know and trust to deliver a great job and in time. I have also budgeted additional time for final design and printing. Im aiming to be ready 1 month before for our delivery deadline to really ensure your reward is delivered to you when you expect it.
