The flowers Sanju Joshi carries are common in India. "I really like (Joshi's) picture because (the sellers) carry the flowers like it is a dress. You should see when they walk through the flower market, it's almost like (the flowers are) all alive," Hermann said.

Hermann shot all the portraits between noon and 3 p.m., combining the hazy smog in the air, sunlight from above and studio lights of his own. Here, Rajesh Yadav holds strands of neelkanth flowers.
