Burning Man event 2011
Three participants of the 2011 Burning Man festival stand in a typically dusty scene on the playa.
The event out in the Nevada's Black Rock Desert allows people to get away from it all and help shape the shared experience through radical self-expression. Large-scale art and other interactions are created by the Black Rock City citizens themselves — some 50,000 strong.
Burning Man took place Aug. 29 through Sept. 5. This gallery features photos of the people and art at this unique event filled with dust storms and dance music.
