The Fisherman’s Market

Bayan Dahdahย  | ย March 8 2016

This photo-series captures a gloomy morning down at the fisherman’s market on the corniche in Doha, Qatar. There is no fresher source of fish; with the fishermen coming in at 7am to immediately unload their catch to be sold. Even at the earliest of hours, you will find loyal and local customers there daily, coming to buy the catch of the day.
