Artists, bohemians, and revelers of all kinds have been making the pilgrimage to the Black Rock Desert in Nevada for the Burning Man festival since 1990. The festival, which started out as a small gathering in San Francisco in 1986, is now a massive event, with over 53,000 attendees this year embracing its principles of decommodification and radical inclusion, self-reliance and self-expression. This gallery of photos by Michael Holden includes some of the most awe-inspiring art created for Burning Man 2011 – such as "Orgasm" by Brian Tedrick, which you can see here – as well as images of festival-goers at play.
