HOMEGROWN: Along Kolkata’s Hooghly River, there dwells a constant sweet fragrance owed to Malik Ghat – a large wholesale flower market that attracts more than 2,000 sellers each day. While most foreign photographers travelling to Kolkata are attracted by its picturesque sunsets, or obsessed with capturing ‘poverty porn’ of sorts, Danish photographer Ken Hermann’s approach was a little different.

Having first visited Malik Ghat as a tourist, he fell in love, and knew he had to go back as a photographer. The vibrant colours of Malik Ghat’s various flowers usually make for a beautifully composed picture, if a seemingly obvious one, but Hermann was more interested in the people behind them. Men and women dedicating their lives to selling fresh flowers captivated Hermann, and inspired him to create a series of unique portraits that bring into focus the faces behind the petals, not to mention how varied each one of their petals really are.

“If you want to take pictures in India, people tend to just stand up and look proud and strong. It’s very different from the Western world because if you take pictures here, people tend to smile,” shared Hermann. Hermann’s website HERE See the whole FLOWER MAN photo series HERE.

ELSKA MAGAZINE ISSUE (08) TORONTO CANADA

Issue (08) is dedicated to Toronto, Ontario, one of the most multicultural cities in the world. It’s also one of the most mixed up and hard to fathom cities – the architecture is all over the place, the neighbourhoods all feel disparate, and the whole place is vast. We knew from the start we wanted to do a Canadian city, and this made a fantastic introduction to a fascinating and multi-faceted country.

We travelled all over this town meeting the local boys and seeing the sights, including lots of cameos of the CN Tower. There’s also a few Canadian touches here and there like one lad in front of some red maple leaves and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau next to a boy with his dick out!

Like the city, the fourteen men featured inside represent a variety of cultural backgrounds, races, body types, styles, and ages (this issue’s men ranged from 20 to 73). Each were photographed around the city or in their homes, and many did both, including a fair few nudes – Torontonians turned out to not be a very shy bunch! And as usual, each boy’s spread includes by a story written by him about his life and the city.
