Project Portrait: Day 64
Day 64 of Project Portrait, this week I’ll be using images taken while in Gambia. First up is a guy I’ve called “Market Man”. This picture was taken while at the Barra market on the north side of the Gambia river. The markets in Gambia are intense experiences. Hundreds of stalls packed tightly together sell everything from knock-off Beats headphones to livestock and everything in between. It’s noisy, full of people and photography is something Gambians are deeply wary of. However, afterwards I saw this man waiting for the boat back across the river with what I can only imagine was a week’s shop. I raised my camera and he didn’t seem to mind so I grabbed two shots and this is one of them. For me it summed up the experience of Barra market: exhausting but productive.
