Gem Fletcher: I think you have a really interesting and powerful relationship with India, with its mystery and its culture, and the photographic potential is everywhere when you're there.
Ken Hermann: India is just a perfect place for a photographer. You just need to avoid the cliches.
India is where I bought my first proper camera – an old Minolta with some old lenses on the black market. I didn't decide to become a photographer then, but it was tuning me in. I think something stuck with me about that place, and maybe that's why I go there a few times a year.
GF: You have a real knack for finding stories which speak to a culture, but they are more unusual or unique. I always go back to the Flower Men, because you can't escape flowers when you're in India. And in a way it's right in front of everybody, but nobody's ever shot that.
You have a real ability to find these small but insanely powerful interpretations of a particular culture, which I think makes a broad audience interested in what you're shooting. These stories are so grounded in the everyday, but you then heighten them and elevate them into a more cinematic world.
India is just a perfect place for a photographer. You just need to avoid the cliches, of course.
Photographically, the possibilities felt endless, because there's so many different ways you could shoot it, there's so many different textures.
I've never, ever done a shoot which was so stimulating. It really was an absolute attack on every one of our senses.
The louder, the better in India.
