On February 23rd 2013, the city of Melbourne hosted a party that was the first of its kind for its locals. Following in the spirit of Paris, Montreal and several other cities in the world, the city powered up its lights from 7pm to 7am in celebration of White Night – a cultural event where traditional and digital artists and musicians gave Melburnians a taste of some of their amazing concepts.
Among other things,
These were just a few of the many attractions on an amazing evening in the city. Melburnians did themselves proud in an incident free evening around a family friendly event that went all night long.
I took it upon myself to shoot some images for a time-lapse video that I had taken upon myself to put together. During the course of the evening, I shot 2,400 frames. While on Flinders Street, I came across this group of young revellers who were in a spirited mood. One of them had the presence of mind to pose for the camera… the rest of the group followed suit and what followed was a candid portrait of the spirit of White Night! While I didn’t get their names, I did pass them my contact details, and I’d like to say thank you to them for being spontaneous and candid in the moment!
If you are curious about the time-lapse video, here it is.
