The flower sellers of Columbia Road Flower Market

Move over Eastenders – here’s where the real drama in London lies.

Well, some of it at least. Columbia Road Flower Market’s history dates back to the 19th century. Taking place every Sunday in the East End, perhaps more interesting than what’s on sale are the characters running the stalls.

Even now it feels next to impossible to describe the sellers there, therefore I’ll let the images do the talking – as they ought to do anyway – and shut the hell up. (You can thank me later.) These photos were taken on March 6, 2016.
