With a location deep in the Nevada desert and tickets sold out in a matter of minutes, Burning Man may well be the world’s most hard to get to festival.

Each year, it has also hosted some of the largest and most outlandish site-specific art ever made.
For 16 years, photographer NK Guy has made the journey to Burning Man to photograph its sculptures, installations, and eponymous Burning Man effigies. Art of Burning Mangathers the best of this pyrotechnic portfolio, offering a record (and a tantalizing taste) of one of the most uninhibited and expressive happenings on the planet.
