Night Market, Beijing, China, 2006

Beijing's Donghua Yeshi Night Market serves up skewers of freshly cooked seafood and meats by the thousands. This image offers a detailed look at the creatures ready for cooking, some of them familiar, others not. It is the wealth of incongruous detail that makes this image express its ideas. To those who enjoy such foods, it might also stimulate the sense of taste. The presence of the cook is important. She humanizes the image, adding the human value of enthusiasm to the equation.
