Festival Of Lights

Berliner Dom

The BERLIN FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS is one of the largest illumination festivals and public events in the world. It takes place each year in October, where for 12 consecutive nights, Berlin's world famous landmarks, cultural monuments, historical buildings, streets and other locations become transformed through light, projections and events.

Extraordinary illuminations, light projections and light objects are presented by many local and international lighting artists. Working with light is still an emerging form of artistic and cultural expression, and the FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS offers a unique platform for visual artists and gives photographers the opportunity to take colourful pictures!

"Light is life, light is energy, light is able to speak all languages of the world and light connects people" (Birgit Zander, organizer)

My documentation shows 10 of 68 illuminations. A few more are in my profile.

Maybe we see us in Berlin next year!!!
