FLOWER POWER

i could look at these portraits for days. in this series danish photographer ken hermann beautifully captures the flower sellers of calcutta's flower market. every day thousands of sellers gather in colorful chaos at calcutta's malik ghat to sell flowers, leaves and herbs that form part of so many indian festivals, celebrations, and rituals. i've always been inspired by colorful, unique portraits (see here and here) and this series is one of my favorites. they are serious but festive, somber but so colorful. such a cool juxtaposition.
