Diwali Celebrations at Artcore on a wet and rainy evening on the 21st October. The rain did not dampen the bright lights and colours. It was great to be part of the Artcore celebrations in Derby city centre. There were speeches, and dance performaces. I was located in the cabin, taking portraits and recording stories for my project seeds to home. I had a mixture of people sharing a story with me.

I had set up a white background, with photography lighting in the cabin.

Handmade lanterns, glass jars painted with tea lights. The have been placed outside on the wet red tiled area outside the artcore building. They are glowing bright in the cold wet evening.
