Highlights of Burning-Man festival in photos (and lots of them)

Started in 1986, Burning-Man is perhaps the most famous festival of its kind in the world. Based around values of community and self-expression, the week-long event is hosted in the Black Rock Desert, Nevada, USA. Championing radical artistic expression and self-reliance, Burning-Man has ever been a haven for like-minded people who strive to live by a certain set of values.

It has now grown into a massive event that draws people from around the world, causing a bustling city to grow from the barren desert during the week that ends with US Labour day. After these seven days of performances, art installations and general Burning-Manishness, the revellers depart leaving no trace except for some ash left as a result of the giant burning effigy that gives the festival it’s name.

Photographer Trey Ratcliff has journeyed to the festival in recent years to capture it’s most striking aspects with his lens. Here are some of the best shots from his most recent visits.
