New gallery – Enlighten 2015

Sydney has Vivid, Perth has Swan, Melbourne has White Night (Nuit Blanche) and Canberra has Enlighten. These lumiere festivals are a great opportunity for photographers of every persuasion to gather the light and turn it into pixels. Canberra’s festival lights up many of the major civic buildings, including Old Parliament House, Questacon, the National Library, the National Gallery and many others.  So I thought I’d grab the camera and get amongst it 🙂

The political cartoons were remarkable, but the display of twitter tags really hit home. Seeing the hard hitting political cartoons lampooning the current and previous governments, followed by #JESUISCHARLIE says much for the value of free speech, and the freedom to hold contrary views.
