A Tribe of Artists

costumes and culture at Burning man


A Tribe of Artist: Costumes and Culture at Burning Man is a series of photographs and mannequins documenting the costumes of Burning Man and is based on a solo show by Geoffrey Nelson for the Nevada Museum of Art in 2007. Nelson photographs burning Man attendees in a portable, tent-like studio that he transports and constructs on the desert playa. The photos were primarily shot in this portable photographic set up from 2006-2009
