With Burning Man drawing to an official close over the weekend, citizens of the playa have begun their descents from the transformational week long affair. They’ve taken home life-changing experiences and mental snapshots of some of the world’s most mind-bending, forward-thinking art.
Fortunately for festival goers who were unable to make this year’s gathering on the dusty terrain of Black Rock Desert, the art of Burning Man never ceases to make it’s way into the mainstream consciousness (thanks largely to Instagram). From the iconic Burning Man himself to the 2018 Galaxia temple, designed by Arthur Mamou-Mani, which saw their final effigy late yesterday evening, attendees were able to take some impressive snapshots of Burning Man’s iconic art installations.

Only fitting that swirling dust made Baba Yaga’s house look like it was wrapped in mysterious mist when i saw it on the playa. The house, teetering on chicken legs, was a huge hit at this year’s Burning Man—with lines waiting to climb the stairs to meet the legendary Baba Yaga, a grandmotherly witch from Russian folktales.
