Street portraits of office-going men in Calcutta

I was in Calcutta earlier this year, making street portraits of middle-aged, middle-income, office-going Bengali men, locally called ‘babus’. I was fascinated by these near-fictional characters that roamed the streets of Calcutta, and particularly by their sense of fashion, which hadn’t moved on from the ‘50s. But they seemed to prefer it that way.
