PULSE

December 19, 2017 2015 had some of the most incredible art on playa. This piece is called Brainchild by Michael Christian out of California. At 21 feet tall and 30 feet wide, I couldn’t imagine what it takes to bring something like this into the middle of the desert and install it securely enough for people to climb all over. …

PHONE HOME

This is one of my favorite shots from Burning Man 2013. It was the year that Trey Ratcliff and I brought our families and were next door neighbors in Kidsville. Late one night we dressed my son Seth in this crazy alien costume that I had prepared. Needless to say, many burners were extremely tripped out by his appearance. Or …

RELEASE THE KRAKEN

Here’s another photo from this year’s Burning Man. I’m presenting this art not how it appeared on playa. Originally, it was surrounded with a fence of sorts that had cranks to make the mechanical squid move it’s tentacles. It was a pretty time consuming undertaking, but I’m happy with the results. I removed tiny sections at a time in order …

LAUGHING TWINS

It was a crazy weekend on this existence we call Mother Earth; Paris terrorist attacks, Beirut suicide bombings, a Hurricane in Mexico, earthquake in Japan. I feel like posting a photo is the least significant thing I can do, but I really don’t know what else to do. I took a little camping trip this weekend with my buddy Casey, …

RADICAL MADNESS

This year’s burn was absolutely incredible. I took thousands of pictures and I’m having a blast really getting into them. This is one of my favorites so far. I was caught in a late night white out that came out of nowhere. I loved it. I would ride blindly into the abyss until arriving upon an incredible work of art. …

UBER STRANGE

I often like to find double meanings in my photos and titles. This photo to me is so odd. If you didn’t know the location was Burning Man, you’d probably be wondering what the heck is going on here. This was during one of the massive mid-week dust storms. While lots of people go for cover, I like to head …

POD OF PROTECTION

I’m still blown away by the art at Burning Man. I also can’t believe it’s been 5 years in a row now. It’s still just as exciting getting tickets and the whole preparation process. This years Temple of Promise was really a challenge to shoot. Some were calling it the Cornucopia because of it’s shape. Others said it looked to …

REVOLUTION NOON

This is Marco Cochrane’s third and final installation of his Bliss project called R-Evoution. It continues the theme of a woman expressing her humanity. I’m always amazed at the engineering that goes into these projects. This one is 48 feet tall and actually breathes! My campmates Edin and Jaci are in this photo. They had a really interesting week, but …
