People of the Playa: Burning Man
Sep 13, 2015
Burning Man is impossible to describe. It's an incredible artistic experiment where around 70,000 people choose to live in the desert for a week and participate as art by constructing a temporary city. It's a place where people are given the freedom to release themselves and be whoever they want.
