If you haven't yet had the chance to attend the eclectic and eccentric week-long Burning Man festival in northern Nevada, the John Kilar 'Metropolis' photo series is the closest you'll find to the real thing. The Los Angeles-based photographer set out to brave the sweltering desert sun to capture the incredible sights at the festival, making for an almost otherworldly series.

From Elton John impersonators on stilts to Barbie communes, there definitely isn't a lack of incredible treats for the eyes and the ears at the psychedelic desert festival. Like a summer camp gone wild, Burning Man is a beloved summer tradition for many North Americans, and the ironically-named John Kilar 'Metropolis' photo series pays tribute to this awesome annual week of wicked fun.
