Market Trading   London has a lot of beautiful markets but they’re mostly boring to shoot. A list of my favourite un-inviting markets where you’re likely to encounter some form of aggression. Dalston, Brixton, Deptford and Peckham. Enjoy.

Through The Barricade   The traffic had halted due to the flaming bins and onslaught of thrown bottles. Having waited long enough one driver made his move and charged through the barricade.
