Smokehouse, Gambia

Photograph by Luke Duggleby, Redux

Once fresh fish reaches the often chaotic markets in Tanji, Gambia, it is sold to a variety of buyers, such as middlemen for vendors and individual customers. Here, a man tends to smoking a batch of fish in one of Tanji’s smokehouses. Fish is smoked for several days, then either sold domestically or exported to northern Africa.
