The infrastructure of Munbai is well built, creating a well-lit road surface from a horrendous traffic situation and colonial technology. In contrast, the chaotic bazaar boasts incandescent lights. Rich and poor, concentrated light and shadows all inhabit the same spaces.
Looking down on the market, clothes and other daily necessities are laid out in narrow shops. The intense glow of a single light in front of each shop, also contributes to the public lighting environment.
As the night cools off, the market becomes a clutter of people and our camera attracts the interests of many shoppers.
A section sketch of the marketplace. 500lx registered at ground level in the middle of the narrow street, the same amount needed for an office environment.
