Dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance, Burning Man is many things to many people. It can be thought of as two festivals, actually: an arts festival by day, and a kind of futuristic, intergalactic rave by night. Ahmed ElHusseiny braved the heat and dust of the Black Rock Desert in Nevada with a DSLR to document both sides of the event. Burning Man: Rites Of Passage - Day captures serene vistas of the 1.5-mile-wide "city" during the day.
Watch the sequel about Burning Man at night here.
