The Northern California Chapter of the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP) presents an evening with George Post discussing his 21-year adventure with Burning Man, as revealed in his just-released book, Dancing with the Playa Messiah.The event, to be held in the magnificent Southside Theatre at Fort Mason's Building D on November 13th,runs from 7pm to 9pm; social hour starts at 6pm.

Post first met the Burning Man when the 1991 effigy was erected and displayed on a floating barge tied
between the piers at Fort Mason on the Summer Solstice of that year. Following the ceremonial "Raising
of the Man" and the generator-powered illumination of his neon nervous system, a film of the first (1990)
Black Rock Desert "burn" was shown in the Cowell Theatre. Impressed by the photographic possibilities,
Post journeyed to the 1991 event and has continued to attend every year since.

The 216-page, 12x12" hardcover book features nearly 1000 stunning color photographs representing Post's
21 consecutive years of participating in, and documenting, Burning Man. At the event, Post will present
a wide selection of images from the book, discussing the challenges of capturing the camaraderie, pageantry,
 and occasional madness of what has now become an inspiring international phenomenon.

Autographed copies of the book will be available for purchase after the program.
So join us at the Southside Theatre in Fort Mason's Building D on November 13th for a truly one-of-a-kind
look at the story of an event that continues to draw thousands upon thousands to the desert each year in
celebration, ceremony, and spiritual communion.
