Burning Man 2014

The Burning Man festival, with a theme of "Caravansary," wrapped up earlier this week 120 miles outside Reno, Nev., in the Black Rock Desert, its home since 1990. Some 65,000 people attended the celebration, which is billed as "an annual experiment in temporary community dedicated to radical self-expression and radical self-reliance." --Lloyd Young (25 photos total)
