#BurningMan

Recently, I received an email from representative of Burningman.org discussing the commodification of Burning Man.

One of the reasons why I love Burning Man so much is because it encourages participants to live their lives free of the mass marketing media blitz we live with on a regular basis.

Everything has a label.

At Burning Man, you only pay for ice and coffee.

It’s refreshing to not hemorrhage money at this community event in the desert.

One of the things they mentioned in their email is the importance of posting REAL photos of Burning Man, not just models marketing special specialized beverages, makeup, accessories, clothing labels, etc.

So here are my Burning Man photos, for your enjoyment.

Totally unscripted and real:
