NO SPECTATORS: THE ART OF BURNING MAN Exhibition Smithsonian's Renwick Museum in Washington D.C.

Updated: Oct 8, 2019

I was privileged to be the only photographer to have multiple images in the show. In addition to the quality of the images from BURNERS, the main reason I was selected from the hundreds of photographs submitted was that my work focused on showing the diversity of people participating in the event rather than the spectacle of the event. Probably the small section devoted to the portraits was because I submitted my book to the curator only a few weeks before the exhibit opened and there wasn't much space left. Later exhibitions showed the images much more prominently.

The exhibition was a huge success with thousands of people attending over a ten month period from April 2018 to January 2019.
