Durham Lumiere, the UK's largest light festival lit up the streets in my home city last week.  Commissioned by Durham County Council, Arts Council England and Artichoke charity, the festival draws spectators in their thousands!  Hosted bi-annually, and back in town for the fifth time to light up Durham's iconic buildings with modern light installations, its a must-see event!  I was commissioned by The Northern Echo newspaper to cover the preview night, walking a mere 11km, I didn't get around all of the displays, but here are just a few of my favourite photographs.
