The secret life of the market (Slovakia)

YRE Competition 2019
1st Place as a reportage photo
11-14 years old

The photo captures the unique way in which some sellers at Miletičova Market have dealt with fruits and vegetables that would have been wasted.

One salesperson put unsold, somewhat unsightly, potatoes in a box and left them on a shelf for people who needed them. In the past she had thrown them into the green waste bin, among rotten bits and pieces and leaves. Other vendors joined her, creating a beautiful link between people who do not meet, but still have a "secret alliance" with each other.
