The desert lit up by a bonfire that glows an eerie orange. Multicoloured flags billow across the flat sands of Nevada.

Peculiar sculptures, strange wagons, and ships sitting in the dust that invoke otherworldly scenes one might easily confuse with cult classic film Mad Max.

These are snapshots from Burning Man taken by renowned photographer Philip Volkers and they will feature at an exhibit at The Hive Spring. Volkers’ chronicles of the now iconic festival will be showcased at a micro-festival featuring live music and performance.

Volkers is a British photographer who has travelled the world snapping rare and interesting adventures and sights. He has travelled to India to cover the world’s largest human gathering at the Kumbh Mela, and crossed the Namibian Desert on horseback. His work includes reportage, portraits and extreme sports and has been exhibited worldwide.

The Hong Kong launch of his technicolour tribute to Burning Man will be a vibrant affair with live musical performances by globetrotting DJs Fleetmac Wood and a light show performance by celebrated artist Rupert Newman, drinks, food and more.
