Burning Man 2012

February 6th, 2013

In 2012 I returned for a visit to Burn­ing Man to fur­ther doc­u­ment the thou­sands of vol­un­teers who build, main­tain and decon­struct the annu­ally tem­po­rary Black Rock City. Every year they ven­ture back to the desert in the NE cor­ner of Nevada spend­ing any­where from 3 – 5 weeks work­ing for room and board and the greater sat­is­fac­tion of being part of some­thing greater than themselves.

This being my sec­ond time there I had a clearer idea of what and where I wished to doc­u­ment. I began by pho­tograph­ing the dif­fer­ent sup­port groups that pro­vide ser­vices from elec­tri­cal power to food and water. Half way through my stay one of my lenses broke. It left me with a focal view in the tele­scopic range. It was the right kind of karma as it reminded me to now pho­to­graph indi­vid­u­als as well. These images are the results.
