Shinjuku at night with illuminations, by Yuki. When I tell people that it’s really cold here during the winter, they always comment that it can’t be that bad since I’m Canadian.

Audrey Fondecave’s new exhibition, “Le nid de l’histoire,” will take place at La Galerie des Nakamura in Edogawabashi from November 30 until December 16. It includes works from her just-released book, DANS LA PEAU D’ANE, with Yayako Uchida, as well as a new installation. There will be an opening party, with Uchida on hand to read from the book, on December 2 from 14:00.
