Every year thousands of people descend upon the all but barren Black Rock Desert to build a community for Burning Man. It’s hard to explain this week-long event to outsiders and sometimes even to burners; as each person has a unique experience that can not be translated. The best I can say is Burning Man was everything I needed at the exact time I needed it, nothing less nothing more. I urge you to attend a Burn yourself, but at the very least this series of magical photographs from Burning Man 2017: Radical Ritual will help you understand why it is such a special place. These photos from the original Burning Man in Nevada, United States, focus on art pieces, art cars and the life of a burner on the Playa.

Burning Man Photography and Art Tour: Radical Ritual 2017
Camera and Equipment Used for Burning Man Photos.
I hope you enjoyed my engaging photography tour from the original Burning Man in the United States. I had a blast taking my camera out on the Playa to capture these special moments. To protect my camera I used a freezer bag, cut a hole in the corner and duct taped it around the lens. I brought a cleaning brush and lens wipes and took daily care of it. I was surprised at how well my camera held up. Next time I will hopefully have an element proof camera in tow. All photos were taken either on my Olympus OM-DEM10 or on a Google Pixel. Both were great for the environment we were in and I was happy to come out with some great night and day photos. I do wish I would have brought my tripod, as I got some fantastic shots of The Man Burning, but either the fire or the fireworks were a little too blurry to publish.
