b. 1986, India

Raj Lalwani is a photographer, whose practice hovers in the space between what was, and what will be. He is also the Editor of See magazine (www.see-magazine.com), a journal dedicated to contemplative writing on the medium.

According to him, inspiration lies in the fantastic, the ordinary and in love.

Raj lives in Bombay, not Mumbai. Most of the time, though, he lives in his head.
