Escape from reality with Burning man 2018
We collected the most inspiring photos of the guests for you
One of the craziest festivals, Burning man, finished in the Black Rock Dessert of Nevada this Monday. For nine days thousands of participants lived in camps, creating a temporary megapolis in the dessert, sharing ideas and enjoying the moment.
Today it`s difficult to imagine that the idea of this huge popular event occurred to two friends Larry Harvey and Jerry James in 1986, more than 30 years ago. That summer they burned the first figure of Burning man on a San Francisco beach. While they were doing it, other people came closer to look. That`s how the first community was instantly created and the tradition began. In 1990 police prohibited the burning at the beach, making 350 people sad. Community moved Burning man to Black Rock Desert, where it takes place till today.
A lot of celebrities, among whom were Heidi Klum, Alessandra Ambrosio, Paris Hilton, Candice Swanepoel, Nina Dobrev and others took part in the event this year.
The theme of the festival was called “I, robot” , so all art installations and guests’ costumes were connected with the topic. Some participants decided that there is no need to wear clothes at all and used glitter, jewelry or other materials instead.
The mission of Burning man is to connect each individual to his or her creative powers and produce positive spiritual change in the world. Seems like the concept is clear as more and more people are getting involved with the festival.
We hope that our photo gallery will make you inspire enough and next year you will beamong other guests of this unforgettable event, Burning man.
