Passage through DAR
“Give us this day, our daily bread”

A book of emotional portraits in black and white, a hymn to life, survival and work. Art photography where the subjects, workers and ordinary people, proudly show their conquest of the day. They are the fishermen and frequenters of Dar Es Saalam fish market in Tanzania, one of the most important of the Indian Ocean. About 20.000 people attend every day this extraordinary place.

“I am happy when I am able to call it a day in the very early hours of new day”, says one of the fisherman. “When I manage to go back home with good fish for my family and sometimes a little money, I thank God. I need nothing more, my life is this market.”
