Let there be light

Let there be light

One thing that often annoys me is finding out about cultural events days after they’ve taken place. For years I’ve managed to miss the Lux Helsinki festival even though I see the ads weeks before. So this year I marked it in my calender and went on a quick tour on evening. Lux Helsinki is an urban festival of light that takes place during January, the darkest time of the year. The light installations are spread across the city centre and are lit during the night. Here are the installations I found interesting and managed to photograph.

I wouldn’t mind if there was a building in Helsinki in this colour!
