Surreal Dream-Like Photos of ‘Burning Man’ Capture the Carefree Essence of the Festival

burning man photos victor habchy

Photographer Victor Habchy has attended the Burning Man festival since 2014, letting his camera capture a visual diary of the surreal atmosphere. His Burning Man photos document the creativity that unfolds in the Nevada desert like a surreal dream come to life. Habchy, who is color blind, demonstrates an ability to show us moments of humanity in an otherworldly setting. The subjects run, dance, play, and embrace in a seemingly post-apocalyptic environment.

“Never in my life have I experienced more love, more freedom and more self-expression. This place gathers everything that is left from the human dreams and utopia and how, by every individual means, we could work together to build up a better world.”

These surreal Burning Man photos will blow your mind.
