Fire and Burning Man Photos

Burning Man is a fire arts festival (with lots of absurdist art, bizarre activities, and general fun) that happens in the Black Rock Desert every year around Labor Day. The Black Rock Desert, aka "the playa", is a salt flat (evaporated lake bed) known for dusty and hot conditions. Camping conditions are uncomfortable, but many camps opt for extravagant living — with porta potties above and beyond what the festival provides, showers, and hot cooking. I originally camped with Bioluminati, then with camp Dance Dance Immolation, and most recently with You Are That Pig.

As a child project of my burning man experience, I wanted to document the interesting and fabulous variety of feet, shoes boots that tread the playa every year. I also have taken an extensive collection of fire photos.
