Caption:

Here women prepare tamales for sale at the market. Made from corn masa (dough) stuffed with meat or vegetables they are cheap, easy to make and filling. Many varieties of leaf can be used as wrappers. These women use the long leaves from corn stalks to fashion the little bundles that will soon be steamed.
