Trey Ratcliff and The Art Cars of Burning Man

Trey Ratcliff is internationally famous as a photographer with a distinctive style. His love of the HDR imaging technique coupled with a skill for marketing his brand Stuck In Customs has propelled him to a social media following of over 16 million, while his fine art series sell for between £15,000 and $90,000.

Each year, Trey makes a pilgrimage to the Burning Man festival near Black Rock, Utah, where he shoots and shoots and shoots literally thousands of images. You can see his entire image gallery here, though for us, his images of the Art Cars of Burning Man are the most iconic.

Conventional cars are banned from Burning Man and there’s a 5mph speed limit. So if you want to stand out, you’re going to have to get creative. And that’s what the Art Cars are all about.

If you love the sound of the Cosworth V8 as much as the V12 Merlin, the smell of Jet A1 as much as Castrol R and admire the late Ray Hanna as much as Sir Stirling, you’ll find you’re both on the same page. Neill's love of art deco buildings means that his ideal home would be a brilliant white, 1930′s control tower in Southern France, with crisply mown grass, biplane parked on the driveway and a Ferrari 288GTO in the garage. This is something that those around him tolerate, though it does concern them from time to time.
