Who hasn't browsed through books, kitchenware, and clothing at the Encants flea market? Who hasn't wandered through the old market and the new one and had adventures, heard stories, and gone home with that special find that brings back so many fond memories? This book aims to capture precisely that feeling. It takes you back to your time meandering through one of the most famous markets in Barcelona and beyond. The book features a collection of gazes, experiences, images, and reflections of the Barcelona’s most unique market. Past and present images of the Encants flea market, which Rafael Vargas has been photographing for years, are the book’s heart and soul. Like the Bellcaire flea market's multifaceted reality, the book includes narratives that take readers on a journey through unexpected treasures, just as if they were actually at the Encants. Delve through photographs, experiences, history, analysis, humour, and more. As you'll see, people and the Encants market itself are the stars of the book.
