Kids on the Giant Head of Da Vinci.­

Inside the mind of da Vinci, by Mischell Riley.­

Burners can walk into the back of Leonardo da Vinci's head, stepping into the mind of the genius.­

Burning Man 2016 photos by Tristan Savatier (email me!)

This year, like the 3 previous years, I traveled to and from BM by motorbike, carrying all my gear, bicycle, tent and food needed for the week in the desert .­ I even managed to carry almost enough water for the whole week.­

For me, the highlight of this year was the amazing performances and art of the all-Chinese Mazu crew.

I did not join the Burning Man "Documentation Team" this year, because I vastly prefer shooting the art and people that I find inspiring, rather than be assigned to shoot a particular area of Black Rock City, or performance.­

Technical note: I shot my 2016 photos using only two lens, a 10-20mm wide angle lens (equiv.­ to 15-30mm with the crop factor), and a Tamron 17-50mm mounted on a Sony A65 (25 mega-pixel).­ I managed to keep the camera and lens completely protected from the dust by keeping them in a sealed zip-lock bag, with a cut hole tapped to the lens.­ I shot less than 1500 exposures.­

Hi-resolutions photos with no watermark are available for editorial use (contact me).­

Burning Man is yearly gathering of about 70,000 people, many from the San Francisco Bay Area, celebrating love, life, passion and art during one week in a desolated desert in Nevada.­

The event takes place each last week of august in an immense dry lakebed called Black Rock Desert.­ A temporary city is built where about everything is permitted except violence, money and commerce.­

The culmination of the event is the burning of a large human-shape figure in a giant bonfire, hence the name (Burning Man).­ The city disappears completely at the end of the week, leaving no trace.­
