Artist’s Statement

Each August 70,000 people gather in a remote part of the Black Rock Desert in Nevada for the
Burning Man festival. In this harsh natural environment, where temperatures can range from
freezing to 40 degrees Celsius and blinding dust storms are common, “burners” spend a week
building an alternative society based on art, inclusiveness, and self-expression.
I took this image at Burning Man in 2018, in a remote corner of the event, far from the camps
and art installations, on a beautiful sunny afternoon. The woman on the bench graciously
allowed me to take her picture. Was she waiting for a new connection, or just enjoying a
moment of solitude in the beautiful Black Rock Desert?

 

Artist’s Bio
I am an award-winning landscape, travel, architecture and Burning Man photographer based in
San Francisco. I take photographs because I like to document my explorations of the world;
because photography forces me to concentrate, focus, and live in the moment; and because I
hope every once in a while to create something of lasting beauty. My photographs have won
numerous awards, including a runner up in the Travel Photographer of the Year competition in
2017. They have been exhibited around the world, including in London, Berlin, Delhi, New York,
Miami and California.
