Dolni Bogorov is a village situated right outside of Sofia, Bulgaria. Every Sunday they have a market for almost everything you would think of. This is not the traditional city market thought. You will see a lot of amusing things. You will ask yourself- who will buy this at all. What I am telling you is that there is a lot of junk there. In between the junk you will find some useful things… sometimes. What I saw was that this is also a gathering point for people that know each other. Every seller has it's own story, his own vision of life. This is the perfect place to see it all from villagers perspective.
The market seems to be completely unregulated and that is easily seen because the county does not keep up with the land. Pot holes filled with water, mud, litter is everywhere. This is what I would call the different side of Bulgaria.

Photographs were taken with great pleasure and respect to the objects.

Долни Богоров е село позиционирано точно до София, България. Всяка неделя там се има пазар, където се продават каквито ви дойде на ум неща. Това не е обичайният добре организиран пазар както в градовете. Тук може да видите неща които ще ви удивят. Дори ще се запитате, кой изобщо ще ги купи тези неща. Това което протакам да ви кажа, е че тук се продават доста така наречените "боклуци". Из между тях ще намерите понякога (доста рядко) нещо полезно. Това което забелязах, е че това е и място където хората които се познават да се срещнат и обменят някоя дума. Всеки продавач има своята собствена история и своят поглед за живота. Пазарът е тотално не регулиран, което е лесно да се забележи, защото общината не дава никакви пари за поддръжка. Вирове пълни с вода, кал и мръсотията е навсякъде след дъжд. Това е което аз казвам другата България.

Фотографиите са направени с изключително голям респект към обектите.
