Today is Light Night in Leeds. Light Night is a local city-wide arts festival and a celebration of the work of any artists, professional or not, in Leeds. The Leeds Centre for Canadian Studies is taking part, offering an event entitled ‘Leeds in the Light of Canada’, based around photographic work focussed on Canada by students at the University of Leeds. The Centre has a history of encouraging students to develop their visual talents, particularly through its Annual Image Competition.
So, as an accompaniment to the visual display at Light Night, we’re showcasing the work of this year’s competition winner, Camilla Hills. Camilla is a recent graduate of the University of Leeds, who spent a year abroad in Ontario — and this is the result.
