vancouver’s symphony of fire

2009/2010/2014/2017.

Over a hundred thousand people make the trek downtown to watch the Vancouver’s annual midsummer fireworks display: The Celebration of Light. Lining the shores from Kits to the North Shore, English Bay is transformed into a theatre of light. Once called the “symphony of fire”, the 3 night event pits 3 teams – each representing their country – in a fireworks competition. The display is accompanied by a musical soundtrack, and the winner is the team whom best syncs the light with the music. I have photographed Vancouver’s event from a few different angles now, and these are my favourites.
