Le festival Burning Man vient à peine de se conclure.

Burning Man, c'est un événement géant et surréaliste: pendant une semaine, des milliers de personnes convergent dans le désert Black Rock au Nevada pour créer une ville éphémère consacrée à l'expression artistique sous toutes ses formes.

Chaque année, l'événement se termine par la mise à feu d'un immense homme de bois, d'où le nom Burning Man.

À la suite de la fin de l'événement cette année, nos collègues américains ont demandé aux festivaliers de leur faire parvenir leurs meilleures photos.

Voici quelques souvenirs de cet événement hors du commun.

His shots from build to burn are on his website: http://toyshoppesystems.com/burning-man-2013/ I spent my Sunday moving people's memories and ashes into the center of the temple while my husband prepared it to burn, then we went out Monday to de-moop and collect the fragments of the big basalt stones at the center of the temple.
