Lighting up London

Crowds flocked to central London for the capital’s biggest ever lights festival, Lumiere London, which lit up the city centre between the 14th and 17th January. Iconic architecture was transformed with colourful light works, spectacular 3D projections and interactive installations. Kiki Deere went to take a look:
