Watch it Burn: Michael Garlington (NSFW)

The Photo Chapel was an epic 40-foot tall Gothic cathedral, adorned with photography, which was burned to the ground at the Burning Man festival. We caught up with photographer Michael Garlington who created the Photo Chapel – the first project in a series of Chapel photo sculptures:

Michael says, “In my work I'm always walking the line between humor and pretentiousness; I take serious subject matter and regurgitate it with a wink and a smile. I  build sculptures to encase the photos, yet for the Chapel series the sculptures burn by the end of the event!”

Take a look at some of the photos from inside the building, as well as the final shots of the chapel!

This year Michael and his crew are bringing out Totem of Confessions as the new work in the Chapel series project. You can see it here
