STREET AND DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY "DAWN IN THE PUBLIC MARKET"

in photography •  3 months ago

Hi Steemit community, today I want to show you the other side of the Public Market, in this case, the Public Market of Barranquilla in Colombia.

We have all seen on some occasion the incredible images of the public markets of many places in the world. We have seen photographs of market places in India, Istanbul (Turkey), Morocco, Brazil, China, and public markets in Manhattan in the United States of America. Places full of movement and color, and usually images with something in common, most of them show human activity during the day.

But the activity in the market almost does not stop, and very early in the morning the human activity is almost as intense as in the day. Today I want, through my photographs, to transport you to the busy world of the public market and that you can, together with me, witness how the public market wakes up when everyone is asleep.


3:00 am, arriving at the historic Downtown of Barranquilla, where the Public Market of the city is located.


Coriander and Chive.


When everyone sleeps, the Public Market wakes up.

I suppose that the market opens at such early hours, if not that it never leaves the activity because the means by which the merchandise is transported moves at night, Trucks, Vans, etc.

It is a lifestyle of these people, it is not just a job, practically their sales colleagues become their closest, or even their relatives. I suppose you are close to that place, why do you take those pictures there?

Thank you so much for supporting my work.

We were a group of photographers interested in showing what happens in the market when everyone sleeps. And no, these are not the only photos I made, I took many more.

And no, I do not live very close to that place, a friend picked me up on his motorcycle around 2:30 in the morning.

Thanks for letting me walk with you in the public market of Colombia. Corn and banana are my favorites. It should be very hard to wake up so early and go work every day... Do these people get enough sleep during the rest of the day?

·

Thank you so much. I suppose they sleep at some time of the day or possibly in the early hours at night

@juancarlos1175 what beautiful pictures brother so when you go to work at the market at that time is that you start working I work in that is true but here in Venezuela there is a lot of crime in the municipal markets here this became crazy but how nice is the Colombian market very beautiful the photos a greeting from here of Venezuela @neymarth10

·

Muchas gracias mi Pana, acá también hay delincuentes en el mercado, se debe andar con cuidado y saber que hay lugares por donde uno no puede andar, la misma gente le va diciendo a uno por donde puedes o no caminar. Un fuerte abrazo desde Colombia, espero que la larga noche de Venezuela pase más pronto que tarde.

·
·

gracias hermano, en todos los mercados pasa eso pero ya uno sabe como se maneja todo en el mercado. un abrazo también de acá de [email protected]

Mis mejores deseos para ti y los tuyos.

Congrats on the @curie hit!

·

Thanks Daveks.

Your photos can tell stories. By looking at your photos, i could felt the noise, the activities and the surrounding atmosphere. Now my mind like a timelapse video, the flow start from your first photo until the last. It was amazing. Did you try to consider video it using timelapse as well? I am sure it must be amazing. Congrat on your curie vote.

·

Thank you so much.

·

Timelapse, wow, It can be a great idea, thank you very much againg.

Hello i really like your photos they really catch the atmosphere your can feel at the market it is very well done great work;)

·

Thank you so much my friend,

It's almost like an ecosystem of your own, don't you think? They have their schedule, rhythm and functioning completely independent from the rest of the city.

Great photos.

·

you're right. Thank you so much.

Capturaste increíbles imagines a esa hora de la madrugada, eres un gran fotógrafo con un grandísimo talento, capturaste la esencia de ese mercado.. Me han encantado tus fotografias, Dios bendiga tu talento, un gran abrazo @juancarlos1175 !!

·

Muchas gracias de verdad, aprecio mucho tus palabras.

Why is the places for buying of the things called square? I basically saw a lot of food and the banana and the corn square shows that the market is equipped with fresh food and a lot of quality sea food, because I saw fishes too.
This is amazing photography blogging, it's a beautiful market tour.

·

Hi @josediccus, thank you very much for your comments.
The fish square is a place where only freshwater and sea fish are sold, in the same way, the banana square is a place where only bananas are sold. both are places that are within the public market of Barranquilla in Colombia.

Hey @juancarlos1175 for sharing these beautiful pictures of daily life of Public Market of Barranquilla in Colombia. I really like the quality of your pictures and nature, but I have noticed the faces of people they look sad, tired and you can see that they have a hard farmer, fisher lives. Of course I have no idea how their life is but I hope they can earn something for their family and I hope that during the day at least there are more customers.

Cheers from Art supporting blog @art-venture

Hello @art-venture. Thank you very much for your comment. I think they do earn some money for their families, but it's hard work and that can be seen in their faces.

Thankyou so much

It looks like your photos arw of large sizes. Only the first two have loaded but the first one alone looks great. You did very good with the post processing.

I wonder what made you go to the market at 3:00am. Don't tell me just to take these photos, is it? 😊

·

We were a group of photographers interested in showing what happens in the market when everyone sleeps. And no, these are not the only photos I made, I took many more.

Thank you so much.

·
·

That's pretty cool of you folks to be waking up so early for photography. 👍

·
·
·

Thank you so much.

You're welcome.

Your photos look amazing! It sure did capture moments in the market that is hardly seen. Do people really go and but stuff there that early?? Or maybe they are just starting out and preparing for the day before people start trooping in? If its so, then its possible that they spent the whole night there because everything seems arranged and ready for the day already... What a tasking job that must be

The guys with the coriander and chives, it looks like they are still sleeping (lol), or were they just posing for the photo?

And those other guys, they look really cheerful and happy, it must be fulfilling doing their jobs and spending sometime with friends...

That market sure is filled with so much goodies; fruits, vegetables, street food and even fish... Woww! Are those corn dry?

·

Hi @audreybits.

In the market, work begins at 12 o'clock in the morning, at which time the different products begin to arrive on the market. At 3 in the morning there are still people preparing their sales stand and there are also buyers.

Some people, when they have prepared their sales stand, take some time to get some sleep..

The image of the corn corresponds to tender or green corn.

·
·

Wow! That's interesting... I have never been to the market around that time, I wonder if it is same around here (I really doubt though), well, maybe someday I will go out and find that out...

They really do need to get those few hours of sleep..

It's great that you took out time to explore that part of life that is hardly ever captured...

·
·
·

Yes, that's right, I do it because photography is one of my passions. Greetings.

·

·
·

That's amazing!

Thank you so mmuch.

I am so happy I saw this post. I eat from local markets in SE Asia now but have never gone like this to see one get ready to open. You give me a goal!

And I would love to have that coriander. I am an addict of it and I wish I had a photo of the pitiful bunch I just ate from yesterday's market haul. It does not seem to be the season for it right now and the lushness in your photo makes my wish it was :)

Great job with this and you have a good way with photographing people :)

·

Thank you for your comments. I have gone to the market many times, but never so early, that was a challenge for me and finally I achieved that goal. Greetings.

·
·

You did a great job with this and now I am inspired :)

·
·
·

I love that you liked my work. Thank you so much.

Your portrait shots are amazing. You truly captured the life of the Public Market. And it all starts at 3AM? Does the public go to the market this early or do the vendors start early for preparation time? I like morning markets which usually starts about 6AM, when it is still dark before the sun rises. There is a certain sense of calmness in the hustle and bustle isn't it :)? What inspired you to take these photos?

Oo that is interesting and buyers are there at 3 in the morning already? Oh I think they could be sellers themselves buying from the wholesellers. Is this a first night/morning market photography project you guys have ventured on? Will you be doing more? It would be nice to see more of this type of photography from you and your group. Not many people are willing to do it during the night or wee hours in the morning.

·
·
·

Thank you so much. Yes, many of the buyers that are there are sellers too, who then sell at retail.

It's the first time that I go to the market at this time, but my group has gone several times.

Soon I will publish two more works about the market, one about the banana marketing chain and the other about fish. Greetings.

This is the other side of the coin, behind the scene as you say, the unseen side, the hard work before we can get to buy the products. Excellent quality photos, great captures. I can almost feel the atmosphere throughout your photos. You should consider entering the #marketfriday challenge run by our dear friend Denise, @dswigle! :) Great job!

·

I love that you liked my work. I did not know that contest, I'm sure I'll participate in it. Thank you so much.

·

My pleasure and always happy to help!

Thank you so much.

My pleasure.

Thank you for showing us Colombia's public market and taking us for a walk through all the variety of fish, vegetables and other types of vegetables that you have in this great market. Everyone gets up early so when we arrive to buy we can find everything ready. The wholesalers sell to them very early and then we buy from these markets. Thank you for showing us all the excellent photos of the municipal market of Barranquilla. A big greeting @juancarlos1175

Thank you so much. I love that you liked my work.
