In the artist's own words: “This fruit stand is located in the central market in the city of Stone Town, Zanzibar. My friend and I stopped by the market while our group was waiting for our jeep to be repaired. This image captured my attention because we were hungry and the fruit was so colorful. The people in Stone Town are lucky to have so many options for their daily diet. In some parts of Zanzibar and Tanzania only two or three different types of fruit are grown. Nutrition is improved signifcantly when a variety of options are available.”
