Photographer David Southwood has been visiting Milnerton Market with his camera for 10 years, taking photographs of the flotsam, jetsam, personal treasures and tragedies that this beloved carboot sale throws up next to the highway every weekend.

Fans of Milnerton Market, and of Southwood’s photographs, will be pleased to know that he’s holding an exhibition of his portraits of the market at the AVA, opening 15 November. Also,  Southwood is publishing a book, with essays by Ivor Powell and Ivan Vladislavic. Visit the Milnerton Market website to view the pictures, and to get a preview of the book too.
