I Attended Burning Man For The First Time And The Creativity There Blew Me Away

Burning Man is a unique annual festival, a temporary metropolis dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance.. It is the crucible of creativity, a festival where the people are not simply “attendees,” but rather active participants in every sense of the word: they create the city, the interaction, the art, the performance and ultimately the experience that is Burning Man.

This year was my first burn, travelling from the UK and enduring countless hours of preparation and I was finally on the Playa. I was overwhelmed with not only how stunning the dry lake bed environment was but also the challenges I faced while enduring the dust storms and sometimes bitter cold nights as well as scorching hot days however what I remember most is the sheer vast amounts of creativity… I believe there is more of it per square foot than anywhere else on Earth, and the energy it creates among the people is infectious. You can truly live moment to moment at Burning Man and radical self expression is accepted as normal. These are a few moments captured through my lens, hope you enjoy.

It kind of feels like a apocalyptical world. Only this way mankind doesn't need to be nearly entirely destroyed for people to freely express themselves. Cool.
