25 beautiful images of Burning Man Festival

"Смерть есть одна из иллюзий слабого человеческого разума. Ее нет, потому что существование атома в неорганической материи не отмечается памятью и временем, последнего как бы нет. Множество же существований атома в органической форме сливаются в одну субъективно непрерывную и счастливую жизнь — счастливую, так как иной нет." Константин Циолковский ZMEY

Adventurer Philip Volkers is not the first to capture Burning Man, but against the odds (sand storms, smoke, glaring sunshine), he’s one of the most successful. He’s covered the world’s largest gathering of people at the Kumbh Mala and trekked on horses through the Namibian Desert. Now he’s put together a chronicle of his experiences at Burning Man Festival, which takes place in an alkaline lake bed in Nevada. His exhibition at Bermondsey Project Space celebrates the launch of his book Dust to Dawn, which delves into the weird and wonderful art installations, pyrotechnic effigies and extraordinary vehicles that emerge out of the sand year after year. Scroll down for an exclusive preview.
