AfrikaBurn 2012

and how did you get so tall?



 
I attended my first AfrikaBurn last year and what an amazing experience, imagine a temporary town with thousands of people, bright colors and smiles where ever you look. For six days the Tankwa Karroo, will have theme camps, dance floors, beautiful art structures, mutant vehicles, wonderful friendly people, music, colorful costumes, performance and so much more.
AfrikaBurn is a result of creative self expression, a community of volunteers, friendliness and freedom.
There’s no money exchanged (you have to take literally everything you need, from water and food to rubbish bags and coffee).
In Tankwa Town anything can happen. One can’t explain a Burn properly unless you have experienced it. How do you explain something that defies description? It is visually overwhelming and no photograph can do it justice, there simply too much going on. You can only be a part of it, but it will always be a part of you.
It has to be one of the best festivals in the world and I can’t wait for May this year were we get to do it all over again.
I would like to thank all the wonderful and beautiful people at AfrikaBurn who allowed me to photograph them.
