Friday is market day in Bereba, a rural West African village in the small country of Burkina Faso. Buyers and sellers come from all the neighboring villages and the market becomes a hive of activity. Merchants' stalls are draped with colorful fabrics and people dress up for the occasion. I select several interesting locations, watch for suitable subjects and place them within the frame. My Market day portraits capture the complexity of style and chaos of color that erupts one day a week in the heart of Bereba.
