This year’s motto of the 23th Carnival der Kulturen in Bielefeld was Atmosfail – for an environmentally sustainable and fair atmosphere. So beside the beautiful costumes – particularity the stilt walkers were really amazing – there were lots of political statements.
For the 20th time Bielefeld celebrated the Carnival of Cultures. As usual it was a real pleasure to see all those beautiful and fanciful costumes.
Since 19 years the “Carnival der Kulturen” (carnival of cultures) takes place in Bielefeld. It is always a colorful procession with a lot of creative and beautiful costumes and a good occasion for shooting nice pictures.
This year I took my 70-300 mm lens with me and made a lot of portrait shots.
I took these pictures on the 18. Carnival of Cultures in Bielefeld. There are every year a lot of beautiful and creative costumes from groups around the region. This year participated 70 groups with around 2000 artists in the procession.
