Barbara Traub is a photographer and multimedia artist, whose work has exhibited at the San Francisco Arts Commission, Xerox PARC in Palo Alto, CBGB’s Gallery 313 and Cooper Union in New York, Museum of Neon Art in Los Angeles, UMBC and School 33 in Baltimore, Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, Les Rencontres d’Arles in France, and the International Fotofestival of Knokke-Heist in Belgium.

Her photography of Burning Man has appeared in Time, Wired, Digital Journalist, Spiegel Online, Photo District News, De Standaard, San Francisco Chronicle, Pozytyw, and New Age. She (and her photos) performed in the Stagewerx premiere of the Burning Man rock opera How To Survive The Apocalypse. A graduate of Johns Hopkins University, she resides in San Francisco, California.

"Barbara Traub first photographed the effigy of a man set ablaze every year at Burning Man in 1994. Her first shots became the iconic image on her book cover."?Time

"Barbara Traub made her first trip to Burning Man and she and the rest of the world have never been the same. Over the next decade, Traub became one of the festival's most prominent photographers [and thus one of its unofficial publicists], having her shots from the desert transmitted back to civilization via Mondo 2000, Wired, and numerous other outlets."?The Onion

?Desert to Dream is an unprecedented photographic record of a decade of Burning Man celebrations. . . . Traub worked on assignment for Wired's cover story on Burning Man, was chief photographer for HardWired's book Burning Man . . . and shot for Wired News in 2001 [and 2006].”?

?Traub's images capture the festival's spirit in lots of zany costumes and art installations celebrating off-kilter takes on contemporary culture and the participants' flights of fancy. . . . Good visual fun and countercultural documentation, this is vibrant stuff in these grim days, a must for pop-culture collections.”?ALA Booklist

"Holiday Bookshelf?Top 10 Pick"?Nevada Magazine

This groundbreaking photo collection now features twelve years of Burning Man. In the beginning, it was a display of alternative art. Today it influences contemporary culture around the globe. Celebrated photographer Barbara Traub captures the zeitgeist in a cornucopia of amazing structures, ingenious artifacts, and eye-popping costumes.

Contributions from filmmaker Les Blank; Burning Man founder Larry Harvey; Star Trek's Spock, Leonard Nimoy; and poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti help illuminate Traub's unique perspective on this singular festival that attracts more than fifty thousand people annually.
