Statement from Steve McCurry on the back of print Flower Seller. Dal Lake, Srinagar, Kashmir. 1996.
"I was staying next to Dal Lake in Kasmir. I would often take a water taxi to the various floating markets throughout the lake. One cold November morning when much of the colour had vanished from the valley, I spotted a flower seller moving silently through a channel with his boat full of flowers. It was an unexpected magical moment. I asked him if I could follow him and photograph his routine. I went on to meet him on several more occasions."
