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.
'Light festival people' from the land by Richard Rigby
Mari Anne, 38, Edam: “I come down to Amsterdam every year to take photos. I work as a Nature photographer so this is quite different. My favourite are are the rainbow and the tulips.”
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."
Martina, 22, Italy: “I have been here for three years now and I think that this year is the best one. I like the different colours and structures.”
Hank, 62, & Jessica, 8, China: “We have been living a China for sometime so this is a nice change to be able to celebrate SinterKlaas and see all of the lights.”
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.”
