Burning Man Photo Essay by Oded Balilty

In this photo taken Friday, June 6, 2014, a hat with stars of david lays on the ground during Israel’s first Midburn festival, modeled after the popular Burning Man festival held annually in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada, in the desert near the Israeli kibbutz of Sde Boker. The festival took place a few miles southwest of the desert gravesite of Israel’s founding father, David Ben-Gurion, who dreamed of making the Negev desert bloom _ though he probably didn’t envisioned it blossoming with hula hoops and pyrotechnics. At the end, participants were told to remove their own trash and leave the desert without a trace. (AP Photo/Oded Balilty)
