Burning Man 2012 is mid-swing, things are said to wrap up on Labor Day, so to get a glimpse of what you’re missing out on see the collection of pictures below. Once you’re done head on over to ScottLondon.com, Scott is a photographer who has captured some of the most impressive and interesting images from Burning Man that we’ve seen.
Burning Man festival is one of the world’s hippest and most mind-blowing gatherings. It’s not quite an art festival, not quite a desert rave, and not quite a social experiment, but something of all three. Held each summer in the remote Black Rock Desert of northern Nevada, it’s a week-long celebration of free-form creativity and radical self-expression.
Burning Man takes place in a temporary “city” some five miles wide that rises out of the open desert toward summer’s end only to vanish again after the event is over. For a few brief days, the ephemeral metropolis known as Black Rock City ranks among the largest communities in the state of Nevada.
It’s a place of breathtaking diversity, a coming together of freethinking artists, dancers, performers, DJs, musicians, designers, and exhibitionists of every stripe. It’s also a place of whimsical art installations, startlingly decorated art cars, pulsating soundscapes and wacky theme camps, all set against an uncommonly beautiful natural backdrop.
