Wet market

The photo stop the imagine, here seems to have been a stop for the people in the photo (although Simon Mak, the photographer says that they started posing for him).
The result – in any case – are three figures with his gaze fixed that give a particular tone to the picture.
All this dropped into the chaos of their market stand: lamps mixed with neon, fish overflowing from plastic bins and displayed on flat wicker, bags hanging, peeling walls, a multitude of buckets has a little ‘everywhere. If Street Photography means telling portions of life and places in the city, with this photo so rich in detail Mak Simon took us right “inside” the Wet Market. (rewiew by Carlo Traina )
