Burning Man Art: A Celebration

Burning Man is about… well almost anything you want it to be. For some it is a deeply spiritual journey, for others it’s a seven-day party. One thing it is definitely: entertaining. I view it as an adult Disneyland filled with art; a modern day happening that challenges both the mind and body.

In this blog I provide a brief sample of art I have photographed during my seven trips to the Black Rock Desert. I am amazed at the variety of art and its quality.

Over the next several months I will feature different aspects of life at Burning Man as the date of this year’s event approaches in late August.

Dragon head and part of its 50 foot body. At night his body and mouth shot fire into the air.

A Daliesque photo collage captures the feel of Burning Man including the looming desert mountains.

One of the more impressive sculptures: two oil tanker trucks welded together.

Oriental temple.


And who could object to the sentiment. My wife Peggy, who is indeed a Mom, forms the centerpiece.

The Man. Standing on top of a tall tower, he will be burned at the end of the week.
