One of my most recent jobs was assisting photographer Siân Davey in Kolkata, India. She was commissioned to photograph the city for a book series called Portraits de Villes. We chose a rather unusual time to go. It was pre-monsoon and it was hot. 45 degrees and humid. Certainly an experience. It was my second time in the country. India still manages to amaze me for its colours and the intensity of its cultural traditions.
