| Recurring Themes | Stalls I

Remember how we previously mentioned that we’d be exploring our own photo archives in search of recurring themes that we have compulsively but less consciously been capturing? Well, we’ve realised that we BOTH are regularly distracted by market stalls wherever we end up!

Character-pipe stall in Akayu, Japan.
African and Carribbean food stall in Ridley Road Market, London.
General goods stall in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
Snack stall in Mumbai, India.

There is something about these humble temporary make-shift structures that just calls to us. Perhaps it is the clash of colours and the way the wares are all rammed and crammed into a little space that appeals to us. Of course this is exactly what they are designed to do! Yet,  we admire them because they are owned by everyday people who are trying to make a living in this world of huge big malls and supermarkets. Everyday fighting.
