It’s been a while since the last time I enjoyed Scotiabank Nuit Blanche. In fact, the last time I went was when the CN Tower took part in the event, allowing photographers and guests to go up to the top observatory all throughout the night. Why won’t they do that again?!
I decided to go this year because there were a few exhibits that piqued my curiosity. Rather than taking photos of just the exhibits themselves though, for the most part, I decided to include the observers in the photos along with the exhibits, making those photos more dynamic. This also gives a sense of how large and engaging the crowd was.
The introductory photo is of the Garden Tower in Toronto, by Tadashi Kawamata of Hokkaido, Japan. Walking into the tower and looking up from the side gave this unique vantage point.
