Photo by @mike_hettwer - Burning Man is one of the most interesting and unique cultural events in the world. Every year in early September about 65,000 people gather in the Black Rock Desert in northern Nevada in the US - and they build a large temporary city. The name comes from the ritual of burning a giant wooden effigy of a man. Everyone dresses up and there are hundreds of art cars or “mutant vehicles” wandering the open playa area. It’s extremely visual and at night, it has the feeling of being part of a five-mile wide movie set. There are dozens of art installations and gigantic sculptures. Attendees often climb the sculptures like this man - at their own risk. The entire city and all traces of humans are trucked out each year. #burningman #blackrockdesert #blackrockcity #nevada #festival #art #usa #sculpture #culture @natgeo @thephotosociety @mike_hettwer
