27 Photos Capturing Burning Man 2016’s Creative and Carefree Culture

Posted on Art 542

The 2016 Burning Man festival has come to a close, and its 70,000 attendees have dusted themselves off from Nevada’s Black Rock Desert and gone home. They’ve undoubtedly left more inspired as the week-long event celebrated incredible works of art and fostered a sense of community among all who arrived.

Many use Burning Man as an excuse to technologically disconnect from everyday life and enjoy being in the moment. Although we got an early peek at some of the impressive, Renaissance-inspired creations that appeared this year, the photos that capture the people, culture, and desolate desert landscape have started to appear in droves. Seeing Instagram posts from attendees gives you a true sense of this festival’s immersive, engaging, and awe-inspiring scene—not to mention the Steampunk-inspired costumes!

Check out some of our favorite photos that showcase Burning Man’s scene, below.
