Welcome home. That’s how you’re greeted when entering a remote piece of Nevada desert where real meets surreal in the annual Burning Man festival.
For photographer Victor Habchy the festival started in 2014:
“I simply packed my bag and traveled the world to attend this magnificent event. I came alone, but let me tell you something: I never felt lonely for a second.”
For one week that patch of desert is transformed into the most surreal setting where anything goes:
“Never in my life have I experienced more love, more freedom, and more self-expression.”
This place gathers everything that is left of the human dreams and utopia and how, by every individual means, we could work together to build up a better world.
“I found beauty in every person and I saw myself beautiful too. I have shared so much, and I have been covered of joy, freedom and love.”
People say you can’t describe what you feel during this festival. However, what they first told me when I arrived is relevant to describe how my week as: ‘Welcome home.’
