Selfie time







Double selfie time






Selfie at Robot Heart






Friday morning Robot Heart party from above






Close up from above






This is a well protected party.
Against a Klingon invasion?





That morning, temperature was barely above freezing point, observe how people are close to each other in an open space. There is no personal space, highly unusual. People behaved like penguins in Antartica with a slow rotation inside-out, the ones at the center slowly leaving room to the ones on the cold rim.








Gorgeous loving couple at Robot Heart







Kinky at Distrikt. Kinkier next year!







Friday sunrise at Ooligan Airways
So cold!!!!!






The 11th principle: You must be at Distrikt by 5:00pm





Upbeat crowd at Distrikt






Thursday morning with Abraxas family





Stilt walkers





The final point of the white procession





Skilled jugglers at Abraxas 





Trevor Moontribe aka Desert Dwellers spinning on top of Abraxas, his set was sublime, in phase with the moment, my second best memory of this year (best memory is one hour of gong vibrations at Gong Vibes camp, a complete brainwash), if only all the dancefloor could have DJ's like him BRC would be an even better place.





How can I describe the mood of the crowd that morning, ecstatic? in trance? I was.








Belle jeune femme





Belle femme pleine d'amour





A character





William Close with the Earth Harp 




Miller Time
Monday afternoon every body is super duper relax, the best day of the event





Anonymous performer inside the 60ft dome of Camp Do more Now
I felt embedded in a scene of 2001: A Space Odyssey, surreal.




Series of Abstract images






6V dome











Playa






Chakra Check-up







Maze at the base





Circles into a sphere







Delicate burners






My camp, Camp Déjà View
Nothing stays on the ground 





At night, I sleep on the cot in the center




Is it really spartan?





At work, on the top of Camp I.A.M.U.




Self-portrait with my beloved Utilikilt





Finally after 13 days in the desert I am getting ready to have my first real meal at a potluck, the best evening of the event .




I would like to thank all the people I met, talked and laughed with.


see you next year

Hi Philippe. I'm sorry we missed saying goodbye to you! We left early due to a back injury, but I'm so looking forward to your photos!

Hi Christina I am so sorry I missed you. I thought you were busy on the playa or in the city. What happened? Are you seriously hurt?
