Remarkable portraits of Indian flower vendors

Ken Hermann went to the flower market in Kolkata, where he snapped these cool portraits of flower sellers with their wares.

He writes:

Flowers are a hugely important part of Indian culture, used in everything from temple rituals to festivals and parties – and Malik Ghat flower market is the largest of its kind in India. Located in Calcutta, next to the Hooghly river, it attracts more than 2,000 sellers each day, who flock to peddle their blooms amid frantic scenes.

Plenty more at his site.
