Memories of Burning Man: Photos by Victor Habchy

French colorblind photographer Victor Habchy crowdfunded his travel to Arizona to capture the magic of the legendary Burning Man festival.

“Each year, for a single week, thousands of free-minded people and curious persons from all over the planet build from scratch an entire town in the Black Rock desert, a white land burnt by sun and softened by sand. They create gigantic wood installations, whimsical sculptures, wear costumes and accessories borrowed from circus, childhood and dreams or just express their philosophy with nudity and free love.

At the end of the week, their creations are symbolically burned. A bizarre experience of spirituality, love and art that fails to be captured by words, as if you’d like to ‘capture sunshine in a bottle’ (as the fans of the festival are describing it).”
