Octopus Lady, Jagalchi Market, Busan, South Korea
In this shot I tried to capture the cornucopia of sea life available in Jagalchi Market, Busan, South Korea. But also a sadness that this degree of harvesting of marine life must wreak on the marine environment. I love the lady's slightly puzzled sad look. There's a paleness to her apron and a droopiness to her posture (and the woman to her left) that mirrors the lifeless draped octopus corpses around her.
