“Instead of getting hard ourselves and trying to compete, women should try and give their best qualities to men – bring them softness, teach them how to cry.”
(Joan Baez, “Sexism Seen but not Heard,” Los Angeles Times, 1974)

 

I met this lady at the flower market which is located in the chawk of Varanasi (Benaras).
It was at the begining of an afternoon in May when the heat becomes almost unbearable but then this place allows to feel a compelling fragrance made of all the flowers scents moisterizing the atmosphere.
The amazing light in this courtyard helps me to come close to the people, I try to breath the color of their souls…
This lady was tired but she was expressing so much of softness, she looked at me and smiled knowing that I was taking some pictures of her…
