The Deserts of Burning Man by Trey Ratcliff 

For the past four years, HDR photographer Trey Ratcliff has attended Burning Man and immersed himself in the culture of the annual event. Through his lens, he captures the essence of tens of thousands of people living together in the desert for one full week. In his series of images, Ratcliff conveys the overall creative spirit through his documentation of the artwork, the costumes, and the stunning golden landscapes of the southwest.

"On August 29th after loosing everything in my life I received a response to a posting I had placed on Craigslist looking for a rideshare to Burningman. The girl that responded was from Austin and agreed to pay for the gas to Burningman and we left that night. Along the way I found out that she…

The Man burned just a few weeks ago and the pictures and stories keep rolling in. Radical inclusion, radical self-reliance and radical expression flourish at Black Rock City to create one out-of-this-world community in the desert where the impossible is a daily occurrence. It’s a festival of life; where the individual is celebrated rather than a particular artist. Longtime BLPfam cohort, Bee Getz, experienced his first Burning Man and has penned a narrative for JamBase that will move you with a beginner’s tale of awe and appreciation-regardless of whether you’ve never been to The Playa or are a seasoned Burner who’s been running your own camp for years.

Losing my virginity… again!

Just for fun, let’s do a quick experiment. Have a close friend or family member slowly read the first three paragraphs of this post. But first, close your eyes, relax, take a long, deep and concentrated breath, first in, and then out. Release your mind, your heart and your soul to their infinite potential, all too often reserved only for our dreams and our thoughts…

Now, just imagine a city of over 60,000 people, stretching for nearly 3 miles from one end to the other, in the middle of nowhere, built over a one-month period, with the majority of the construction completed in the final week by the city dwellers themselves. This city exists for only one week out of the year, and then vanishes without even a trace, not even a sparkle, not even a spec of sawdust. Within this city, which is the largest temporary community and leave no trace experiment on the planet, there exists for just one week – a fully operational airport, a post office, mailing addresses for every city dweller, full medical services, waste water management, ordained religious leaders for legally sanctioned marriages, and full-time rangers and security services. This city welcomes anything and everything, from debauchery to kids and families, without judgment or doubt or concern. This city of over 60,000 people, most of whom have never met before in their life, sustains itself under the core principles of radical inclusion, self-reliance and self-expression, gifting and decommodification, participation and communal efforts, civic responsibility, immediacy and leaving no trace.
