Camp Déjà View after a 7 hour solo setup.
The rental markings were later covered with butcher paper.

Nothing on the ground except the blue portable water tank acting
as an anchor at the middle of the tarp.

5 tables, two cots, several folding chairs, one more time I saved my back.

All rebars are covered with orange rebar caps for active safety, on top of it a piece of reflective tape participate to passive safety at night.





Underneath the shade, it did not change much during the event except for
the view that soon got blocked.
The cot was used to rest and sleep under the canopy.
With the years I realised it was not necessary to spend time hanging the "walls" with the yards of stretch fabric that I still bring in case of.
I live in the open, I see the neighbours and the neighborhood evolving.





Two weeks went by very fast.
I met many people, had great conversations with The Eye, Javier Diaque,
Diego Dasal Stieglitz and Torrey Sarge Smith
Lost 6 pounds and came back in one piece.
Mission Accomplie.



After 21 visits to BRC since 1996, this was the last one.





Bye, I will miss Black Rock City and its citizens.


je suis venu te dire que je m'en vais



Very soon, my book will not be available for the reasons mentioned
on the first post of this 2017 blog edition.
You can still support what was a work of passion for the last 10 years.

I'd love to know why 2017 was your last burn after 21 years. Would you write a post about it? Thanks for your inspirational photos and books of which I have the 1st. Polvo, Bruxelles.
