Photographer's Note

The Stables Market is the largest section of Camden Market. The market is built in the former Pickfords stables and horse hospital which served the horses pulling Pickford's distribution vans and barges along the canal. Many of the stalls and shops are set into huge arches in railway viaducts.
It is a mixture of indoor and outdoor shops and stalls, some of them permanent, others hired by the day. Chain stores are not permitted. In common with most of the other Camden markets the Stables Market has many clothes stalls. It is also the main home of furniture stores in the Markets. Household goods and decorative items are sold, many of them hand-made and often ethnically influenced. Some of the goods are secondhand or 20th-century antiques.
The Market is known for its clothing and art pieces for alternative sub-cultures, such as goths and cybergoths. Two of the more well-known of these shops are Black Rose, which caters for goths, with items such as coffin-shaped handbags, and Cyberdog, which houses a huge range of cyber-style neon PVC and rubber clothing.
