Woman Sewing In The Market

Woman sewing in dim shop

The woman sewed in the dim shop

Shot at Kyauktan Township in Myanmar.

The small shops were clustered in the dim market. And the local people worked in the dimness. The woman in this photo was one of them. Apparently, she was an Indian Burmese. A sewing machine with a foot treadle was placed in front of her. And she was just sewing. It was common to see that kind of machine here. Because it didn't need electricity, a treadle machine might be appreciated. Although the authority drew in foreign capital after the democratization, these manual industries were still seen everywhere in Myanmar.

When I asked for taking photos, she nodded calmly. Yet she was busy to sew. She didn't cast an eye on me and kept working. Alternatively, another woman sitting on the other side of her looked straight at my camera.
