Traveler's Tales

Scenes from Burning Man

by None

"Burning Man is much more than just a temporary community. It's a city in the desert, dedicated to radical self reliance, radical self-expression and art. Innovative sculpture, installations, performance, theme camps, art cars and costumes all flower from the playa and spread to our communities and back again." 

That's the direction from the Burning Man website. These images show how that ethos gets translated.

The festival is raging from August 28-September 5.
