Creek Road Market is predominantly a stock fish market in a Port Harcourt suburb which is home to many former Niger Delta Militants. The community, whose major source of income is fishing, has in the past witnessed turmoil arising from decadence and neglect of the water body (mostly rivers) largely polluted as a result of massive oil exploration in the region.
Still standing tall, Mrs Salome Manuel, one of the market traders who has sold goods for over 15 years at the market shares her experiences, saying she has been able to foot the bills of one of her sons in the higher institution with the little she earns from day-to-day sales of stock fish. She says the market is widely known now and frequented by elites from all parts of Nigeria.
Here are pictures of ADay in Creek Road Market – ADay in the World!
ADay in the World is a documentation of photographs taken on the May 15th 2012 at the Creek Road Market, Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria, as part of submissions to ‘’aday.org’’, a project initiated by the Swedish non-profit foundation – Expresssions of Humankind, and supported by the Global Advisory Council. Participants from all over the world take pictures in a day for the purpose of documentation and reference in the near future. Some of the entries would be selected and published in a book titled “ADay in the World” in October 2012.
