burning man 2008 - 38 photos

Burning Man 2008 photos by Tristan Savatier (email me!)

In my opinion 2008 was clearly the worst year of the 10 years I've seen, due to a combination of reasons: a stupid and politically-charged theme ("The American Dream") that turned off many artists, not a lot of interesting or inspiring art on the playa (due to the previous reason), a city that was much too large (noticeably larger than previous years), very soft ground making it hard to ride bicycles and very dusty, cold, windy weather on the last two days with serious dust storms, and the cancellation of the fire conclave Saturday night for no good reason (there has been bigger dust storms on the night of the burn in past years, causing hours of delay, but they still had the fire conclave).­

Because i was really not inspired by by most of the art i saw this year, i mostly took photos of people.­

Hi-resolutions photos with no watermark are available for editorial use (contact me).­
