    A: What’s your name?

    T: My name is Tonsai Amartayakul. In Thai, Tonsai means the start of line route, lake or river.

    A: Where were you born? What is it like there?

    T: I was born in 1996 in Bangkok. Many people who live in this city aren't actually from Bangkok, I was born and raised here. My first home was near the downtown of the city centre. Because I have lived here my whole life, I find this city a little boring at times. But it is my home, and I am happy to be here especially because my family is here.

    A: Back then when you were a child, did you dream of travelling around the world one day like you do now?

    T: When I was child I really wanted to explore to Europe. Especially the Netherlands and the UK. I still do! But before I decide to travel, I am planning to focus on my work in the fashion industry and my studies.

    A: Is there something you really miss from your old place?

    NM: Where are you from and how has it inspired your photography?

    DD: I grew up in Birkenhead, a working-class town in North West England. My upbringing, and the people I grew up around have had a massive influence upon my photography. In homage to my youth, a large proportion of my photographs have been shot in and around my hometown, featuring family, friends and locals to the area.

    NM: When did you first pick up a camera?

    DD: I bought my first camera when I was 17. It was a Holga – a toy camera renowned for its light and colour leaks. Playing around with that camera was my first introduction to the process of using film. It wasn’t until University that I really began experimenting with photography. I was a fashion student, initially, studying at the University of West of England, where we were encouraged to photograph our designs. I instantly realised I much-preferred photographing clothes to making them.

    NM: Where are you from in India? Where did you grow up in Australia?

    AK: I’m from a city called Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh. It’s just two hours from Delhi. When I was 8 months old my family moved to Melbourne, where I was raised. Every two years since I was a child my parents took us back to India. Now I go every year.

    NM: How and why do you split your time between the two countries?

    AK: I like to spend a few months of the year in India, for me it feels like recharging. I get impatient staying in Melbourne too long.

    NM: What inspired you to start photography?

    AK: It wasn’t photography itself that I fell in love with. I felt a need to explore my heritage and photography was a perfect medium for that. Now I cant imagine doing anything else.

    NM: From your ‘Nagar’ series, I see that your main subject are local people. What is it about people inspires you?

    AK: There’s always that unexpected...
