Every year, participants in the Burning Man Festival descend on the playa of Nevada’s Black Rock Desert to form a temporary city—a self-reliant community populated by performers, artists, free spirits, and more.

An estimated 70,000 people came to Burning Man 2015, “Carnival of Mirrors,” from all over the world to dance, express themselves, engage in a social experiment and take in the spectacle.

Gathered below are some of the sights from the festival, photographed by Reuters photographer Jim Urquhart.
