At this point, we envision the Galaxia Temple book will be divided into the ten themes below and will contain photographs and writings from many burners about the theme. The plan is to include 2 16x20"posters, one like the image to the left and another using Black Rock City as the base design.
1. Overview by architect Arthur Mamou-Mani 2. London Crew
3. San Francisco & Burning Man Organization 4. Reno Component Build Community
5. Oakland Component Build Community 6. Construction on Playa
7. Support Crews 7. Black Rock City Event Week
9. The Burning of the Temple 10. Leave No Trace
There may be a few changes down the road, but this is where we are as of 9/27/18.
.The images in BURNERS are organized around seven reasons people attend the event

Burning Man invites one and all to be adventurous. Whether it is first timers (we call them virgins) or seasoned veterans, every year is a new challenge.
The Adventure theme contains portraits that reveal the reason I think most people come to experience Burning Man for the first time.
We seek an challenge of some kind, an adventure that reflects a need at a specific time and place in one's life.
For me it was to experience something completely out of my normal routine after my wife's death from ALS--and to fullfil her wish that I go.
The portraits in Discovery reveal another reason I think people come to Burning Man--to discover something about themselves and/or others.
When I dance with my photographic partners to make a portrait, I seek to amplify the Burner principle of radical acceptance by providing a safe and totally trustworthy environment in which my partner(s) feel safe enough to let the default shield drop and reveal an aspect of their soul in that moment.
These private revelations may be expressed through tears, vulnerability, rage, fear or confidence as the soul peeks out from behind the ego's shield.
The third theme's portraits reflect the diverse nature of our Burner community.
For one week, we are a microcosim of the global community that believes in the power of art, freedom of expression and supporting everyone's right to be.
Above all, we celebrate the diversity of the human experience in an open and accepting emotional environment in the midst of a frequently hostile physical setting.
We call this "radical inclusion."
