I recently shared some other photographs I loved that were taken in India of rickshaw drivers (by photographer Greg Vore), but this time we travel to Kolkata for the flower market. Photographer Ken Hermann captured the flower vendors of the famed Mallick Ghat market, isolating them from what is surely a chaotic scene and letting their colorful wares pop against a subdued background. I love how they end up enveloped in blossoms, creating a sort of abstract costume. What could be more chic than a dress of flower petals? It’s a reminder of the beauty that can be found in the most unlikely of places.
