Burning Man is a week-long annual event held in the Black Rock Desert in northern Nevada. The event is described by many participants as an experiment in community, art, radical self-expression, and radical self-reliance.
Whew! It felt good to be back! Heading in exhausted after a busy summer, this year was a bit of a challenge for us. Unruly neighbors, Nick getting sick, and the overwhelming population growth dampened our spirits a bit, but good times were still to be had. Despite what the pictures show, I spent more time this year exploring the smaller camps of the inner city, and experienced many unforgettable encounters. However, I get very shy bringing my camera out in small crowds, hence the lack of variety. If I took your picture and handed you a card, but you don’t see the image here, email me with the location we met and I will send it your way! (Sorry, nighttime shots usually end up tacky, but I still keep the images!)
