I have been documenting Oliver and Alila since they were fresh little newborns. Now that little brother Julian has joined the crew, and since their move to Singapore, it is particularly heartwarming to capture them when they come to visit. What an honor to see these smart, funny, and talented kids get older. I say it often, but I can’t really say it enough, I love my job and my clients.
In honor of Burning Man, this story is from our August 19, 2017 event titled “The Playa.” Brian Monahan is a long time burner, a native Nevadan, and a leather craftsman. Brian’s story hits on all of the special qualities of Burning Man, including: curiosity, community, and the complexity of living on a dry, Nevada lakebed for a week.
