Scantily clad passion-fest in a secluded desert? Sign us up. As a matter of fact, we’re so FOMO-filled by Burning Man that for the past couple of years, we’ve reported on it in a variety of ways. Everything at Black Rock City seems, from an armchair festival-goer’s perspective, downright fascinating. Except the bug scourges, that bit sucks.
We’ve written about celeb happenings on The Playa, big changes for the future, and must see photos, but we’ve never actually shared the work of someone who snapped pictures while fully immersed in the whole scene. To remedy that, we sat down with famed Burning Man photographer Scott London (@Scott.London) and picked apart what it’s actually like to photograph the world’s most famous short-term (soon to be long-term) conscious community.
He was nice enough to answer our questions about gear, partying, and how the hell he keeps playa dust out of his equipment.
