Just about every summer since 2007 I have made the trek out to Black Rock City to take part in the annual Burning Man festival.

Unfortunately, nothing I can write in a paragraph or two can sum up the Burning Man experience, so please just enjoy the images below.

 

Burning Man 2019

Coming Soon!

Videos

These are some of my favorites video about Burning Man that may give you an idea of what it’s all about.

To me, this first one is what I consider to be the Burning Man theme song:

KJ and Stefan Spins present their HOMEage to Burning Man 2011. Enjoy along with us!!

KJ & Stefan's gift from the Playa. Thank You Michael Franti for your song Say Hey - I Love You Thank you to all that participated - We love you.

Our gift to Burning Man 2013: Performed & reinterpreted by Kai Altair and Brent VanDyke

Thank you all participants and the Org for another magical year at Burning Man. Thank you Mason Jennings for such a beautiful song.

KJ & Stefan Spins continue their annual Burning Man video gifting with this year's installment. Check out the lip-dubbing citizens of Black Rock! Song by: Aimee Mann, Michael Penn, The Beatles.

The story of Dr. Seuss's final book, told by the people of Burning Man.

Burning Man is more than a party. See why people call it home. Dive into a rabbit hole of fire and dust with one of the most captivating events in the world: #burningman. Ignite is a documentary short film captured at the annual social experiment in Black Rock City, Nevada.
Craft curator Nora Atkinson takes us on a trip to Nevada's Black Rock Desert to see the beautifully designed and participatory art of Burning Man, revealing how she discovered there what's often missing from museums: curiosity and engagement. "What is art for in our contemporary world if not this?" she asks.
This documentary explores the interactions, emotions, and transformations people experience at one of the world's most misunderstood events: Burning Man.

The eccentric desert festival has been criticized and idealized over the years but one thing remains: it's a killer backdrop for a photo.

This video captures Burning Man 2013 from an elevation of 5495 feet above sea level and over 4 linear miles from the center of Black Rock City.

At 9 years old, Julia Wolfe is a veteran of Burning Man--yes, that Burning Man--as well as the youngest TEDxABQ speaker to date! Her experience in the Nevada desert transformed and inspired her.

This short film portrays the magical, dreamy and inspiring sides of Burning Man. Shot in 2014 documentary style, without any setup or staging, but post-processed with slow motion and creative color grading, techniques typically used for fiction or music video work.

After 9 years of consecutive burns and 4 years of creating burning man videos, here's my take on Burning Man 2016.

Karim Tabar ventured into the Burning Man playa not really knowing what he was about to capture that night, morning or day. Everything just happened seamlessly. The Robot Heart 2012 video is a 7-day compilation of how he felt best captured the spirit of Robot Heart's sound wave of love + beats.

FYI… the 2019 images won’t be available until Mid October
