Photographer's Note

This shot was taken in the Sir Selwyn Selwyn-Clarke Market on a busy Saturday morning. These elderly ladies were selling papaya, probably grown in their own gardens.
The market, named for the former colonial-era governor, heaves with commerce and gossip. The corrugated iron roof sits atop pillars of brightly painted timber, while far below on the market floor, men sell seafood of every colour and size, including translucent squid, brightly hued reef fish, and massive tuna, which rest on beds of crushed ice. In the early morning sun, women in tropical church dresses and straw hats fan themselves under the shade of rainbow umbrellas. Heaped before them are bananas (there are over 30 types in the Seychelles), freshly cut coconuts, and brick-sized mangoes.
