Lumiere London is back for 4 nights and the opening night in Thursday was blessed with a crisp clear sky.
54 illuminated installations split into 6 kind of distinct areas are visible from 5.30pm until 10pm, you’ll never do it in one night. Here is a snapshot, literally, of a few of the installations around Mayfair and the West End that blew my photo neurons on the first night.
There is a more comprehensive recollection on Graffoto, including more of the installations enjoyed last night.
At the time of writing (Friday morning) there are another 3 nights left to run. More information on the Lumiere London website, I tried the free App, the download map (contribution required) and the physical map available from vendors at various locations for £5, the hard copy map; was by far the most convenient for navigating a lot of the back street mazes navigating from one to the next.
It is street art, just not the tye Shoreditch Street Art Tours usually focusses on!
