Walking Shops

Margrit Coppe’s book Walking Shops provides a most colorful and fascinating look into the lives of African women in Angola. These women are literally walking shops with the buckets, baskets and bags they carry on their heads filled with anything one could buy at a store from underwear to pencils. They walk with dignity and grace selling their wares to earn a living for their families as best as they can. The full-page color photographs are what tell the story beautifully.
