234--Nevada: Burning Man, Vault of Heaven 2004

cherie writes: It happens once a year in a desert city raised from the dust. This year over 35,000 people converged in Nevada and created a city called Black Rock City (BRC.) It is a city that exists only one week a year.

BRC springs up in the middle of no where to become Nevada’s 8th largest city. BRC has its own streets, post-office, hospital, police force and fire department. On Sept. 6th BRC vanished…dust to dust.

For one week, the Black Rock Desert becomes a living space of freedom, creativity and extreme self-expression. This expression was evidenced by the variety of boats—from pirate ships to sailing hammocks to magnificent metal yachts that looked more like a piece of desert art than a sailboat.

When you are out there in the blackness and blankness of the desert, you can almost see the universe expanding violently across its 14-million light-years.

Burning Man was held this year from Aug. 30th to Sept. 6th. For more information about the festival see www.burningman.com or see my past photos of Burning Man.
