Man at the Santiago Market

2006 International Photography Exhibition
“Man at the Santiago Market"
Location: Downtown Santiago, Dominican Republic, at the semi-outdoor market
Photographer: John Voltz
Category: People
Award: Honorable Mention

In the photographer's words: "This was our second day in the DR. We took a trip into the city of Santiago and visited the fresh produce market. It was really one of the poorest places, the man was selling some kind of beans. The people that were selling at this market were below the DR poverty line. It gives a person a better idea of what the country is like rather than the beach resorts on the coast."
