Burners: photos needed of Cradle of Mir creator Sasha Mironov

Sasha Mironov is a Russian artist who instigated the Cradle of Mir, one of Burning Man 2013's most spectacular artworks. He has been arrested by US authorities for an undisclosed felony and is in jail in LA. His colleagues believe -- again, for frustratingly unspecified reasons -- that photos of Mironov taken on Aug 30 will help clear his name and they're appealing for anyone who might have a picture of him to send it in.

WE NEED PHOTOS. Your photos!

If you have a photo that was taken on Friday, August 30, the day of “Cradle of Mir” burn, that has Alex on it PLEASE send it to us as soon as you can! This will serve as evidence for where he was at that moment. We need the originals, with the date the file was created, so it is clear when the photo was taken. The photos should be dated August 30, 2013.

Please email your photo to: mironov.ram@gmail.com

Help us, PLEASE, this is VERY IMPORTANT!!

I can’t speak about any details publicly, as any extra information could lead to complications while the case is ongoing. At time we’re just asking for photos, the rest will be disclosed and put to rest hopefully sooner than later.
