Each year, thousands travel out to Nevada at the end of the summer all, in the name of community, self expression and art. Burning Man has been in existence since 1986, as it first took place in San Francisco, but soon migrated to Nevada’s Black Rock Desert. Roughly 60,000 individuals are in attendance each year, with the festival taking place over the Labor Day holiday.
In celebration of the upcoming festivities, photographer N K Guy recently released a new book, The Art of Burning Man, that highlights the unique and mesmerizing artwork showcased throughout the week. A slew of creative projects flood the desert during the seven-day period, with the centerpiece being a 40-foot-tall wooden man that is burned on the festival’s final night.
To commemorate the most recent 16 years of Burning Man, we have provided some of Guy’s eye-catching photographs above. Upon peeping, you can then follow here for more on his new book.
