An introduction to Van Phuc Flea Market

 

Good day folks,

This short series of images is an introduction to Vạn Phúc Flea Market and my on-going related series.

Van Phuc flea market is an open market. Often, the market is open on the dates of 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 every month (Lunar calendar it is). However, when it comes closer to Tet (the last month of a lunar year), it’s almost open everyday and most of the time, crowded! This year was the same, it was my first year after coming back from my education in Australia, it took my chance, make a few series, explore the market culture in Vietnam.

Alright,

In the mean time before my official project can be published, this is an introduction to Van Phuc flea market.

Enjoy!
