At a time when that last set of Christmas lights are being taken down in cities around the world, (why aren’t Christmas lights an all year round thing?) I’ve come across these beautiful pictures taken in Thessaloniki, northern Greece, of a truly charming display of street lights. An artistic group, Before Light worked with the residents of Thessaloniki by repairing the unused and broken lighting they donated for the project and installing them on Ernest Hebrard Street in the city centre. After working tirelessly in a nearby abandoned building, repurposing people’s old lights, the group invited all residents of Thessaloniki to a large street party with live music to celebrate their city. Their country may be hard-up at the moment but that obviously couldn’t stop them from finding ways to bring dazzling light and charm to their streets.
