Amsterdam's Light Festival through the eyes of 2 Photographers

Every winter the canals of Amsterdam are illuminated by the most beautiful light sculptures created by young established international artists: Amsterdam Light Festival 2016.

Published by Richard on 08/12/2016

You'll find more than 35 artworks and installations placed along the canals and special places throughout the city until January 22nd. And Our A City Made By People Amsterdam photographers Richard and Aron went exploring the Amsterdam Light Festival 2016. In two different ways: Richard walking through the city searching for festival admirers and Aron from the Water Colors boat tour in this Amsterdam winter wanderland goodness.

Giacomo, 30, Italy: “I am an exchange student and am being shown all the lights for the first time by my friend, I am trying to understand the installations and perhaps interact with them as much as I can."

Marloes, 33, Amsterdam: “I am on my way to party to celebrate Sinterklaas. I think that the lights are nice but Amsterdam always is a spectacular in the evening anyway.”
