African roots

Cartagena, Colombia – December 2017

An Afro-Colombian woman sells fresh fish in the market of Bazurto in Cartagena, Colombia. Far from the touristy places in the walled city, a colorful, vibrant labyrinth of Cartagena’s biggest open-air market sprawls to the Caribbean seashore. Here, in the dark and narrow alleys, full of scrappy stalls selling fruit, vegetables and herbs, meat and raw fish, with smelly garbage on the floor and loud reggaeton music in the air, the African roots of Colombia are manifested.
