Exhibition: Fishbar Photo Market, Fishbar, London, until August 12 2012

Books, prints and special editions from some of the most imaginative contemporary photographers at the Fishbar, including a selection from the Magnum Photos Bookshop and the eclectic Trolley Books.

Individual artists include Laia Abril, a Spaniard who recently produced a brave portrayal of the pro-anorexia movement and the day-to-day struggles of bulimics, and Irina Werning, whose spookily brilliant Back to the Future series saw adults faithfully re-enacting the poses they struck as children or younger models decades earlier.

Multi-award winner Jocelyn Bain-Hogg presents insights into femininity and London’s organised crime world.

Work by Vanessa Winship, a Sony World Photography Awards winner and Deutsche Borse and National Portrait Gallery favourite for her striking portraits from Turkey, Sweet Nothings: Rural Schoolgirls from the Borderlands of Eastern Anatolia, also appears among more than 20 contributors.

  • Fishbar, Dalston Lane, London. Open 11am-7pm. Admission free.
