Celebrating the Self-expression of Burning Man Festival

Burning Man is an annual festival that takes place at Black Rock City, a temporary community erected in the Black Rock Desert, Nevada. Photographer Kim Hardy, who attended this years event, captures the spirit of Burning Man festival in a series of photos:

“This year was my first burn, travelling from the UK and enduring countless hours of preparation and I was finally on the Playa. I was overwhelmed with not only how stunning the dry lake bed environment was but also the challenges I faced while enduring the dust storms and sometimes bitter cold nights as well as scorching hot days however what I remember most is the sheer vast amounts of creativity… I believe there is more of it per square foot than anywhere else on Earth, and the energy it creates among the people is infectious. You can truly live moment to moment at Burning Man and radical self expression is accepted as normal. These are a few moments captured through my lens, hope you enjoy.”
