Photographer's Note

Before you tell me that the man's foot is missing, I need to explain that I couldn't move further back since behind me were smorgasbord tables and this friendly baker was wedged in this small space.
For me there is nothing better than the wafting aroma of fresh bread and no person more noble than a baker who with flour, water and maybe yeast, plus a pinch of salt or sprinkle of sesame seeds, ends up feeding families and solitary souls and only makes a profit of a few coins per loaf. The work is tiring and hot.

You need to look at the workshop photos to see something I had never seen before. The oven has pebbles in it which are heated by a blast of fire from a gas burner. The bread sits on top of the hot pebbles and in the process of baking it ends up having little, round perforations.

PHOTO DEDICATED TO SAYEED RAHMAN who also posted a photo of a baker in Morocco.
