Radish Reality

I captured this photo because I’m amazed at how often the people around markets transform to somehow match their surroundings. I can’t explain why, but it just seems to be the case. I remember a photo of a very serious and stoic Russian woman standing over her matryoshka doll collection. And in this photo, taken at the Viktualien Market, the man in the background somehow seems to twist like the Radishes. Even the flaws in the radish resemble the material curves in his jacket. Radishes are a Bavarian delicacy, and Munich’s markets leave no shortage of interesting images to explore.

That's a really good photo - I love the Viktualienmarkt.

I'm getting very excited, as I'm off to Munich for a long weekend next month. I'm going to start trawling through your archives to get some ideas for excursions :)
