Heiwa Park is s a cemetery of 150 hectare with a large pond and lawn field, its near my residence. Heiwa means peace. I like taking a walk with my camera watching people worshipping, fishing and playing easy baseball. In spring, so many people enjoy sakura blossom with a bento (lunch box) and booze. I think ‘people’ in the cemetery is also looking forward to be with us every year. 20 mins of foot from Higashiyamakoen or Hoshigaoka metro stations.

Yamayamado is a bar with a gallery and the owner is an alpinist. Artists, writers and people from TV comes here night after night. A beautiful affable siberian husky welcomes them. Most of them know each other. I like watching their relationships which seems a little bit complicated, that includes me. The owner is so generous and drinks like me. A 'Closed' sign is always hung in front but, don’t worry, it’s open. 5 mins on foot from Kakuouzan metro station.

The bar of bars. I often drop by for a last drink. Dark light, thick counter, nice music and Irish whisky makes me so relaxed. There is another small room at the back and parties are held here irregulary. I spin vinyls, cutting and scratching for these parties. People are sitting back and relaxed, sometime dancing to their favorite old school tracks. 1 min on foot from Kakuouzan metro station.

A French and American dual-citizen, Margaux is definitely Parisian, but shares a bit of her heart with the Big Apple as well. She’s a songwriter, a singer, a musician, a photographer and a muse. Much more than your average clothes-horse, she’s the kind of girl all photographers and designers want to work with. Her simple yet elegant taste does not betray fanciful creativity of her aristocratic heritage. After the 2013 release of her French album with Capitol Records, she’s coming back refreshed with the ability to collaborate with the people she loves without any restriction to express herself freely.  www.margauxavrilphotography.com

Lilli Waters was born in 1983 in Armidale, NSW. Fascinated with a world of fantasy rich with ethereal themes, Water's work is a mix of both digital and analogue photography using heavy layering processes to create fantastical and somewhat unsettling moods. In her portraits she exposes an enigmatic sense of her past and surrounding environment, mixing brutal realism and chaotic settings which resists the serene and awkward beauty of her subjects. Waters has held several solo exhibitions, including the World Trade Centre in Melbourne of survivors from the Black Saturday bush fires, also a selection of works for a group exhibition at Brick Lane gallery in London towards the end of this year. Some of her career highlights include being a Finalist in the Head On Portrait Prize 2013, Highly Commended in the Moran Prize in 2012 and Qantas Spirit of Youth Awards in 2012 & 2013. Waters dedicated her 'She Raw' photographic project to preventing violence against women, in launching the She Raw book she raised over $1000 for the White Ribbon Foundation in 2012. Waters is currently living and working in Brunswick, Melbourne.
