Photographer's Note

It is at the bottom of an alley which seems not to carry out nowhere, that is the market of Sighetu. Before passing its enclosing wall and reaching its covered market, we go along a glaucous street to the battered paving stone where salesmen are installed with same the ground Ukrainian for the majority, they spend each day the border with some food products to sell (coffee, cigarettes...) which they will negotiate at very gravitational prices. These small traffics form part of the decoration in the frontier Rumanian cities of the ex-USSR. The afternoon is advanced and inside the market, the majority of the salesmen began with remballer their goods. The last customers saunter around the dismantled stalls to half or forward themselves to the bars. Some installed some tables on their step of door and at this still hot hour, it of assoiff廥 there much! We sit down to drink a Coke. Concurrently to us, a group of four men of around fifty of year and a woman a little younger, holds a discussion baited around their beer tankard. They have the air a little "hot" and their appearance, their vestimentary behaviour (crasseuses and worn jackets, formless hats, barbs of several days...), leave us think that they are perhaps tramps. One of them is one-eyed, another walk with crutches, and the cigarette end stuck on the lower lip of the third, always seems to have been there... Nevertheless, it is released from their physics, a certain good-naturedness. When our glances cross, one smiles oneself. I approach them to take them in photograph and the woman benefits from this sign of interest of our share, to come to sit down with our table. She starts to tell us a history in her language which we do not understand. Obviously, it speaks to us about something which opposes it. It holds up its passport, takes to us with part... It has the 廨aill嶪 voice of the large smokers. Its made toothless mouth, really do not return its fatty hair, it attracting! After several minutes of efforts to communicate with us, it ends up being wearied and joined her companions.
