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.

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

I'm an artist/ photographer based in London and Mumbai. I'm Interested in history, current affairs and cultural identity. I'm inspired by my immediate surroundings. I travel a lot and always make work in the places I visit. I often turn my attention towards architecture in order to examine the identity of the places I visit. I work intuitively in a documentary manner as it allows me more in depth involvement with my subject. I only use film/analogue processes, mainly mediaum and large formats. These are preferred as they are more precise and slower and aenable me to take time over the composition, to produce a more thoughtful and deliberate image, as compared with the snapshot/hit and run type of photography.
