Culture and Social issues

A Photo essay by Nick Somers

What is it that you need? Ingredients for your favourite meal, new furniture to match freshly painted walls, a new shirt for a night out at the bars? Perhaps that one specific and tiny part of an equally particular device that you have been searching for but just cannot find in any store in the city – and is completely driving you crazy. Don’t worry, you will find all your heart desires in one of the many markets that line the streets of La Paz and El Alto. No item is too big, small or rare that you won’t find it waiting in one of the many makeshift kiosks scattered across town. From coca to a donkey to a car, the markets have us covered.
