Dawn to dusk at Porto's Bolhão Market

 

Mercado do Bolhão (Bolhão Market) was opened to the public in 1914 as a farmer’s market. The market had two floors and a large central courtyard. Over the years with little maintenance it decayed and in parts was held up with scaffolding. The photos were taken about three months before the market was closed for restoration. These images were part of "The final days of the Bolhão Market", my project working with photographer John Stanmeyer for Porto Photofest 2017.
