File 275 – Bucharest International Light Festival, SPOTLIGHT 2017

   In my previous post, I used as title the biblical syntagma, “let there by light”, because it was dedicated to the Easter celebration. Well … in my little virtual world (Imagynasium), the miracle happened and Destiny has made that the next (this) post to by, full of light and color. I missed from blogosphere and I will probably still be missing, because of problems with the internet network in the area where I live (sorry please, for the delay in answering messages … I will come back soon). During this time there were few events, where I had the chance to take hundreds of photos. The most spectacular event that I photographed in this period was, Bucharest International Light Festival, Spotlight 2017. Bucharest is not a city with an impressive architecture. Physical earthquakes (Bucharest is the European capital with the highest seismic risk … at an interval of 30-40 years, are produced earthquakes bigger than 7 degree, on the Richter scale) and political/historical earthquakes (Communist period, World War Two), have made that just few buildings from the architectural heritage of the city, to survive until our time. As a little compensation, has evolved lighting decoration of these historical buildings, through International Light Festival (Spotlight), which is to the third edition and has a great successful (more than 200,000 visitors were present at the 2016 edition). The Festival promotes and develops a form of urban art, based on video mapping and light structure. For four days, in each year, Bucharest becomes the European capital (and probably the World capital) of the light art. On the old buildings from the center of the city, light  shows are projected and making dreams to become reality. For “low light” photographers enthusiasts, the event is a true “Mecca”. In every year, thousands of photo cameras, from simple smartphones to the most sophisticated photo capture technologies, “fight” for the best position, from where can take home, pieces of this amazing “light dreams”.
    I admit … this post is too long … but the light shows were dynamic and I had to choose at least 5 pictures from each, to illustrate the light motion. Another reason for the length of posting, is because it is representative for the motto of my blog … “Imagynasium: the places where color learn to love forms”!
    And now … ladies and gentlemen … for those who love light and colors and have a few free minutes … I invite you to join me, in a little “blow mind” photo adventure … Bucharest International Light Festival, SPOTLIGHT 2017 … as seen by Imagynasium … 😀

  1. De obicei vad Bucurestiul ca o metropola posomorata ce are aruncate pe-ici-pe-colo cate o tusa de imitatie pariziana. Dar vazand fotografiile tale si inca cateva tot de la Spotlight, parca vad si capitala noastra intr-o alta lumina 🙂

      • In primul as dori sa cer scuze, pentru raspunsul intarziat (din motive tehnice; probleme cu reteaua de internet)!
        Evident, comentariul tau este o surpriza placuta … si pretioasa … pentru ca vine de la o persoana cu educatie artistica. Cu greu ar putea cineva sa ramana insensibil, in fata acestor expozii de lumina si culoare! 😀

      • Fotografiile tale sunt o surpriza pretioasa! 🙂 N-am ajuns de ceva vreme in Bucuresti (…copil crescut in Ardeal…) – imaginile tale de la Spotlight sunt extrem de seducatoare si motiv indeajuns de-a porni la drum!! 😀
        Nici o problema pt intarziere, saptamina a zburat nici nu stiu cand… Salutari si-o seara minunata!


  2. Wow! Wow! Wow! Glad to hear from you again! If I had to pick a favourite (tough to choose) I would go with Fantastic Projection, Silhouettes Party, Symetry and Guardians of Time … actually all of them .. haha. Awesome job!

  3. The art that digital makes possible is so fantastic… so many amazing effects and stories told in facades. About your first part I recalled the phrase of a famous (just in Peru of course) historian: “Save us god from earthquakes and mayors” referring to the disaster in the cities that both nature and politicians have done here. xD
