During the last week of Aug '18,about 80,000 people from all social classes around the world gathered in the desert in Nevada.People had to face the harshness of the desert in this week-long city.People face it with different attitude.Some people tend to hide from it,some people struggle against it,and some people enjoy it.These portraits were taken during the 2018 Burning Man Festival,which is an annual anti-traditional carnival began in 1986,organized by Black Rock City,LLC.Purpose of the festival is to promote community identity, cultural diversity, creativity, fashion and anti-consumerism.
