In The Markets
For her featured project she immersed herself in the food markets of South America. During three months she went around cities like Copacabana, La Paz, Cusco and Arequipa to document the routine of these places. While walking around, the women were the predominant character. Sewing, cooking, selling, they were all there. Despite the vivid colors of their clothes, there was a rather dark atmosphere. One look was enough to show how strong these women are. They come early in the morning to open their stalls. They put everything in place and wait for customers. By the end of the day, it is time to wrap everything up in a big colorful cloth because on the next morning they will be there again.
