EDITORS COMMENTS
In this photograph titled "Mogadishu. The Market" renowned Italian photographer Folco Quilici takes us on a visual journey to the bustling streets of Somalia's capital city in 1972. With an expert eye for detail, Quilici captures the essence of daily life in Mogadishu's vibrant market. The image transports us to a time when traditional markets were at the heart of community interactions, where locals and visitors alike would gather to exchange goods, stories, and laughter. As we delve into the frame, we are greeted by a symphony of sights and sounds: merchants proudly displaying their colorful wares under makeshift stalls adorned with intricately patterned fabrics; aromatic spices wafting through the air, enticing passersby with their exotic allure; and animated conversations echoing amidst the lively atmosphere. Quilici's composition skillfully balances chaos with harmony as he frames his shot from an elevated perspective. From this vantage point, we observe a sea of people navigating through narrow alleyways lined with wooden crates overflowing with fruits and vegetables. The diversity among those present is striking – men donning traditional Somali attire known as macawiis mingle effortlessly alongside women draped in elegant hijabs. Through his lens, Quilici not only captures the vibrancy but also reveals glimpses into individual lives within this dynamic marketplace. Faces etched with stories reflect both weariness from long hours spent tending stalls and genuine joy derived from connecting with customers over shared experiences. "Mogadishu. The Market" serves as both a historical document frozen in time and an invitation for viewers to immerse themselves in another era – one that celebrates human connection amidst adversity while showcasing Somalia's rich cultural heritage.
