Images of Burning Man 2009

Burning Man can never truly be captured on film, but even two-dimensionally the raw environment of the Black Rock City playa is something to be admired.

Beauty in all walks of life.

Burning Man culminates with a fantastic temple fire, signifying the release of dreams, wishes and remembrances and marking the start of a new tomorrow.

    Oh wow. I pine so much at the thought of getting to see Burning Man one day. Your pics are amazing – I particularly like the first one with the man in the distance. Watching it burn must be unbelievable.

    Joanna was one of my campmates in Camp Nomadia Annex. She snapped my pic one day sitting in front of our camp, it’s the 5th one above, the guy with the pink leg warmers on his arms :-). One of the things I have always found amazing about Burning Man (this was my fourth burn, while most of our camp mates were “virgins” in BM parlance) is how easy it is to make friends on the playa. Despite the tough survival conditions, just about EVERYONE is universally nice to each other, and it leaves you with the feeling that if we could all treat each other that way the other 51 weeks of the year, the world would be a much nicer place. I can only say that Joanna and all of my camp mates are awesome people, and I hope we get to spend more time together “on down the road”.
