Western Lights (2016)

They say photography is all about light. Western Lights will marry the two art forms
of photography and lighting design. It offers industrial landmarks of the West in
illuminated form for photographers to feast upon!

Artist Phil Lethlean will light some of our favourite industrial buildings and spaces
across the area of Hobsons Bay. Locals and camera buffs are invited to step out after
dark with cameras, tripods and smartphones to capture some of these luminously-
dressed industrial beacons. Simply email the photos to us and we will upload them
to our Facebook page.

Festival goers are invited to follow us on Facebook and like, or even love, their favourite Western Lights pics. At the end of the Festival, the winning six photographs will be selected and printed into postcards promoting the region.  If you love photography as much as you love the West, this project is for you.
