|Cool Jazz, a chilled Martini and one BIG DUCK|
Floating on the Playa
After Midnight: Hard to find on the Playa in the
dark, The Duck offered live Jazz and full barter bar. I enjoyed some cool
jazz, a chilled Vodka Martini and the company of my friend and model, Cher
name is Michael Depraida and I earn my living as a full time independent
artist. My medium has evolved from classical painting, through traditional
photography and is now moving into digital and graphic art.
This is the first time I have ever been compelled or desired to capture an event in a photojournalistic manner. I am proud of this body of work, the results of my first BURNING MAN experience . Settling for seven days with my friend Cher on the corner of FANTAIL and 150 in Van-Go, my 36 foot digital Darkroom and full time residence of the past three years.
On the Playa, I produced, bartered and gifted over 100 of the images displayed here. Perhaps I gave you one!
images here are produced and matted as archival fine art prints, signed,
dated and available in two sizes
