“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet”.
(William Shakespeare – Romeo and Juliet, Act II, Scene II)

This portrait was shot at the flower market in the chawk which is in Varanasi (Benaras).
The sweet smell of roses that this young woman was selling was sweet, deep and heavy.
I always enjoy to spend some time there during summers and feel the freshness coming from the moisture from the fragrance gathering all kind of flowers.
In this courtyard the light is amazing and provides a backlighting which reminds the Italian renaissance chiaroscuro providing a combination of brightness and “ping” (brilliance and resonance) with warmth and depth.
