lakemba / by maja baska

A photographer friend Isabella and I took a day trip to Lakemba. We spent the day walking around bugging people for photos. I do this for a living (bug people into having photos) so I found asking people for photos on the street surprisingly easy. I liked how people still do their day to day shopping on the main street, getting their fresh herbs from one Asian grocer, fresh meat from the Halal butcher, a bag of lentils from the Indian grocer and so on. We ate beautiful Lebanese pizzas with sour spinach inside and drank Ayran and of course some pistachio baklava.
