About The Flaneurbanite

~ ~
Hello and welcome to Flaneurbanite's Urban Legends!

The Flaneurbanite is Shilpa Bhatnagar, an urbanist by education, a development and destination consultant by day, a writer and photographer by passion and an inveterate flâneur and city lover. 

Originally from New Delhi, India but now based in London, UK, Shilpa looks at the cities she lives in and travels to, through her city-trained eyes and through the lens of her camera - capturing fragments and rewriting the City in the true spirit of flânerie.
Shilpa also writes (guest and freelance) for various publications on Urbanism, Design and Travel.

A number of Shilpa's pictures have also appeared in print - supporting her writing, or elsewhere.

If you'd like Shilpa to contribute to your publication, or if you would like to use any of the pictures that appears on this blog, please write to her.
