Nottingham Light Night 2020
I received a commission from Nottinghamshire Live to get down to Nottingham city centre for the 2 day celebration of Nottingham light night on February 7 & 8. It is nice to be getting some recognition as an event photographer here in Nottingham. From what I can gather the inspiration for light night is from the Festival of Lights in Lyon, France that expresses gratitude toward Mary, mother of Jesus in the Christian tradition with the city being spared from the plague in 1643. Having attended the “Fête des lumières”in Lyon previously I think Nottingham does a decent job in creating some much needed winter entertainment. Making art accessible to all and especially the young is always a credible action.
