About the artist


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 (on bike)  

 My 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!

 All images here are produced and matted as archival fine art prints, signed, dated and available in two sizes 
8 x 10
(11 x 14 mat)  
11 x 14
(16 x 20 mat)
