More from my shoot this week in Kolkata.

Despite the poverty people can still retain their dignity. Everyone here was happy to have their picture taken. C&C welcome.

Another nice series. Some of them seem a bit yellow, but may be my monitor.

Thanks to you three. The light was warm, but I agree a couple are slightly too yellow - the perils of using a laptop I guess.

Excellent work. I love Calcutta and the people. I was there last in 2004 and it has been too long! I spent an entire afternoon talking to an older gentleman about Kurosawa and Ray and international cinema, smoking unfiltered cigarettes and drinking tea from little clay cups on a bench by the side of the road. Thank you for sharing!

They still roll their own on the street and drink from those clay cups. Unlike many Indian cities Kolkata hasn't changed much over the last twenty years, apart from its name of course.
