“There are always flowers for those who want to see them.”
(Henri Matisse – French Painter, 1869-1954)
This young man was standing in front of me at the flower market which is in the chowk of Varanasi (Benaras) where I like to come often in order to take portraits.
He was holding jasmine and rose garlands from which I could feel a sweet and fresh fragrance.
He caught my eye as he seemed to be wrapped in his thoughts, the contrast with the noisy crowd of people who gathered closely around us was stricking.
It was as if we were both away for a while.
