Every morning, in the centre of Siem Reap, the Old Market opens for business as it has done for many years. The market is a hive of activity and sells meat, vegetables, rice, clothes and tourist souvenirs. This woman is gutting and filleting fish. The fish is caught fresh daily where these woman do all the preparation and sell to customers. Nothing goes to waste and the fish heads are sold to make fish head soup. This young woman was sat on her stool staring into space. Perhaps she is dreaming of another place or time. Dried fish hanging in the market creates a nice fishy smell throughout the market. This woman take a break from her morning chores to enjoy a cup of milky tea. A young women working in the butchery. Her face is whitened with cream. In Chinese culture white skin is associated with wealth, beauty and purity. These three ladies, perched up on their little stools, chat as they work gutting and preparing chicken. Nothing goes to waste in Cambodia and you could buy all parts of the chicken. The butcher carefully mixes up a paste. I'm not sure what it was for. Perhaps it was an ingredient of the sausages she was making. Freshly made sausages hanging up in the market waiting for someone to buy them. The old market was a fantastic place for some people photography. I tried to practice something I had read before about moving slowly in through the crowd and stopping and standing still until you go unnoticed. Seemed strange at first but felt more comfortable the more I practiced and actually seemed to work. Despite being one of only a handful of foreigners in the market people I wandered unnoticed apart from a few occasions where I asked permission to take the photo. I really enjoyed photographing the market. I could have spent days there. If you would like to see some more, head over to my SMUGMUG site.
