I was at Burning Man for 5 days this year, camped at Esplanade & A (Honey Puddle). One of our neighbors was the incomparable Death Guild Thunderdome, and as in 2017, I took the vast majority of my photographs during two nights of fighting there.

Besides the speeches, however, my focus was on capturing the attendees and moments of the conference. In 2017, I attended ALSFC with Judd Weiss, and we both spoke and photographed the event (the 2017 album can be found here). This year, Judd was busy with our company (Lit.Club), and so I came out solo.
Not only was the conference a blast (with daytime speeches, cocktail receptions in the evenings, a banquet, a yacht cruise in Sydney Harbor…) but there was also a bonus day the Monday after the conference where we got to do a Wildlife Walkabout and meet Koalas and Kangaroos as well as visit several wineries for wine tasting!
