From the inside of the ticket office at Gorakhpur’s India Railway Station, a man willingly stops to pose for this photographer, before proceeding with his inquiry. The dark night lighting of the exterior lent plenty to the contrast of the bright interior, creating a fantastic rich tone in the soiled and heavily scratched window.
