WHERE THE PAVEMENT ENDS
Keywords: Black Rock, desert, lyricism, mountains, Nevada, photography, water.
Black Rock is one of the nation’s newest national conservation areas. This significant desert-and-mountain region 107 miles north of Reno, Nevada, is the focus of increased global attention, in part due to the annual Burning Man festival, which has become a cause célèbre of the dot-com set and many others. This photographic essay offers a visual sampling of the lyrical sensibility of this unique environment. Geography, I argue, can be an overtly photographic textual form.
