Located in the starkly beautiful setting of the Black Rock Desert, the Burning Man festival attracts some of the most interesting and extraordinary people, art and activities you are ever likely to find in one place. Burning Man transcends traditional interpretations of what a festival is. It has its own identity, its own peculiar and astounding nuances. It represents more than just a week in the desert:  It represents a way of life. A central feature of the festival is the building and burning of a temple. The Temple in many ways is the spiritual hub of the festival. People visit and write messages for departed loved one’s on its walls and meditate in its centre. They grieve. They marry. They party. The festivals climax see’s the Temple being burnt and with it the grief that people have shared within its walls. These Burning Man photos are a documentary in pictures of a week at the Temple that share the narrative behind its construct, its being and its ultimate destruction..

A selection of images saw Peter awarded European and Irish Professional Photographer of the Year in 2013. Peter has now created, with an extended collection of images from the project, an exhibition and book.
