Photographer's Note

Known in Spanish simply as the "Lighting" (El Alumbrado) is a traditional seasonal event in Medellín,where the city hangs millions of Christmas lights and holds light shows and other cultural events. The event usually lasts from the beginning of December until the beginning of January, and the lights are designed and sponsored by the city's public utilities company. Because of its attraction to tourists, the event has gotten bigger each year, with a widening availability of energy resources and budgets, and increasing participation by local citizens.
