If you have contact information for the woman rappelling in this photo, please email me, i might need to get their model release, thanks!

I installed a 9mm static rope at the upper window of one of the buildings, and went rappelling down the facade.­ I then let a few other rock climbers do it with my climbing harness.­

The controversial Wall Street mock-up was designed by Otto Von Danger and built by a DPW crew.­

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.­

If this sounds interesting, check out the official Burning Man website at www.­burningman.­org.

If you have contact information for any of these persons or art pieces, please email me, i might need to get their model release, thanks!

Please include the photo name or link in the email.­
