“Felt inspired seeing this senior lady fishmonger happily retailing (including handling, gutting and boning) a large variety of fish at her stall in Petaling Street Fish Market, Kuala Lumpur, proving that age is no barrier to staying active, even when this activity is dominated by males and younger people.”

View below to read the judges’ comments. Join us this 21 August on World Senior Citizen’s Day as we reveal the 3 winners of the Life Begins at 60 Photography Contest. Let’s celebrate the beauty of life!
“The fishmonger is definitely over 60 and its nice to see that she’s still actively involved in her business. The composition is nice with the fish leading our gaze towards the lady. There’s also enough light and detail to showcase the environment. The photographer states that he is inspired by the lady and so am I.” – Kenny Loh, @Kenny Loh Photography
“The image captures a good balance of shadow and light, blacks and colours. An insight into daily life in a wet market where people display persistence in earning a living for one’s own independence.” – May Chong, GreenAcres Retirement Village
“This photo angle has captured everything that the morning daily life offers in the bazaar.” – Yonsen Chan, @Idea Being
