Nassau, Bahamas 7.10.17 – I have always been a fan of discovering and being an active participant in Bahamian culture. Though most people look at culture as something that relates to a country’s music or art, I have come to realize that the true base of culture really lies in the people and their personalities.
As a Bahamian who has mainly lived in the capital (New Providence), but has had the opportunity to see just about every island in our archipelago. I can admit that New Providence has lost some of its island vibe and charm, but there are still some unique places and people that capture my attention. One of those place is the Montagu Fish Market that lies at the most eastern point of Montagu Beach. People drive past it every day but I usually stop by to capture the daily activity, gain knowledge on the lifestyles of the fishing culture and of course get the best price on the freshest fish on the island.
The following is the first in a series of collections I will be capturing of the true Bahamian experience, all over the country. There will be more images of the Montagu Fish Market and other places like it forthcoming. Happy Independence Day Bahamas!
