Billingsgate Fish Market
During the late 1800s and early 1900s my family were merchants in London's Billingsgate market. I thought it was about time I got down there to see what the modern day Billingsgate was all about. Alarm set for 5am and wellies at the ready, I spent a morning photographing the traders and porters as they went about their business.

Unsure why it's taken me so long to discover Graciela's photography.
Hugely inspiring and hard-hitting portraits.
