Mexican Market

In the foreground is a woman sitting tall and straight selling her large clay pots and baskets, under a makeshift canopy to provide shade. Across from her is a couple with similar ware and then behind them is an assortment of colorful textiles and onlooking buyers. Behind the original seller, a throng of shadowy people are milling around with an assortment of textiles in the background. The canopies invite the viewer into this rich in texture and character laden market, with intense contrast in the lighting: a stark sun drenched path entwined in the shaded canopy areas.
