Photographer's Note

On Montevideo's waterfront, one can eat at the Mercado del Puerto (Port Market), an indoor but open-air structure containing several parrillas, or Argentinean grills. Meat is cooked on large racks over wood fires, like the one seen in the left of this shot. Montevideo has many of these, which helped contribute no doubt to the almost constant odor of wood burning, at least in the day and a half we were there.

I had to take several versions of this shot before getting one I was happy with, as the constant motion of the cooks made it difficult. Finally, the main cook took a moment to breathe, and I was able to capture him, his grill, and the bustle around him.
