Los Angeles-based creative Alex Medina produces a series of breathtaking aerial photographs that depict the scene at this year's Burning Man festival. The imagery is exceptionally satisfying, to say the least. Captured by the magic and spirit of Black Rock City, Medina has previously described the event as "a photographer's playground." In 2018, he takes advantage of that by sending his drone into the sky to depict "all the amazing things [Burning Man] had to offer."
The breathtaking aerial photographs are an eclectic presentation of the temporal installations. The composition varies across the images — from balanced or skewed to busy or sparse. In a sense, the magnitude of Burning Man is not realized until it is observed from a vantage point. One of the most satisfying photographs from the series is the twisting wooden Temple that was arranged and designed by architect Arthur Mamou-Mani.
