Burners

black rock city, 2017 / 2018
Analog black and white photographs

At Burning Man Festival, I seek the uniqeness of the individual, within the diversity of the whole. Ideally I take just one photo per person or couple, to capture their Radical Self-expression in the moment.

To detach my work from current aesthetics, I only use black and white film with imperfections created in the developing process. It imitates a look of aged, historic photographs, supporting an illusion of traveling into another era.
