A great place for an informal lunch or dinner while in East London. It’s one of Nuno Mendes’ projects and it is housed in the impressive Town Hall at Bethnal Green. We filmed with Mendes in his kitchen when the restaurant first launched.
Oh, La Cite. Most every café in Florence is a quick exchange of coffee and money. However, I love nothing more than snuggling into a comfortable couch with a warm beverage in hand. La Cite provides a cozy atmosphere where you can spend endless hours relaxing with one of their paper back books. In addition to it’s laid back vibe, you can find live music, book readings seminars, screenings and performing arts at this literary café. This city within a city is covered in art and serves the best hot chocolate in the city.
After years of shaving my own head I found these guys and they did a haircut in 10 minutes without an awkward conversation, and it was the hair cut I always wanted but didn't know how to ask for it. Good music playing as well, sometimes.
One of the many reasons for venturing to Yuen Long a quiet suburb, was to track down this building. It used to be a secondary school, attended by my dad, but since the school closed in the 80s, it became abandoned, and is now used as a film location for horror flicks (theres a film school across the road). He'd not seen this building since he teenage education, so the fact that I went there meant a lot to him. Most buildings of this ilk in Hong Kong have been knocked down and turned into modern flats, so when my Dad saw this photo, he was glad that it's still in tact, despite it's condition.
This second hand market covers the whole center of the city, starting on Saturday evening and ends on Sunday in the afternoon. Initially I was attracted by the nighttime-atmosphere of the event, but in recent years the 'après' May-market, when heaps of abandoned junk are left in the street afterwards became more of my interest than the market itself.
Hi, I am a chilean artist. I do collages with color papers, magazine cut ups, spray paint and little objects. I am trying to disperse some color around. Right now I am in Berlin at an artist residence.
