About "Monday Market"

I was Working for an aid organisation in the small town of Shirati in Tanzania, very close to the Kenyan border. It was a Monday which meant a trip to the market and that when everyone in the village comes out. Whilst shopping for supplies this woman came to stand next to me and immediately all I saw was a life lived with many stories to tell and many thing seen through those eyes.

The juxtaposition of the Sotheby's bag on her head also added so much story to what in my head was a very beautiful image. I then quietly moved away and found a spot that I could grab this portrait without disturbing her and the rest they say is history.

Only 5 prints will be done of this work.

About Lindsey

Lindsey Appolis

The Act of photography does not captivate me. I had plenty of random jobs through high school and my first introduction to photography was working at a racecourse during a gap year. The scheduled photographer failed to pitch and being the youngest guy there, they all assumed I would just know how to use a camera. I somehow managed to get a few decent snaps and was featured in their weekly betting magazine. My first published work in a weekly R20 magazine. A decade later I quit my job at an investment firm and picked up a camera once again. With a camera in hand and an insatiable curiosity, I've never been happier waking up to go to 'work'. I realized that photography had little to do with equipment and everything to do with heart. Bracing for that moment when a dancer is in full flight or moving through markets in Tanzania, photography has landed me in moments that only last a second but are forever held still as I hear that click. The joy and at times sadness of a photograph, the places and faces I've met, and the thrill of knowing I will be doing this forever is what captivates me.
