The Offset Group Show is a photo series, contributed to by multiple photographers, that explores exotic markets around the world. The photographers explored cramped market avenues and bustling streets in some of the world's most interesting, intriguing and stimulating markets.

The exotic markets captured in the photos are located in places as varied as Yemen, Vietnam, India, Thailand, Syria, Norway, Myanmar, Egypt, Morocco and Italy. These markets sell products ranging from fruits and flowers to fish and camels. The highlights include the floating boat markets of Thailand and the historic markets in the city of Saana in Yemen.

These colorful photos offer a glimpse into markets and shopping culture that is a world away from the glitzy shopping malls and robotic shopping experience on offer in much of the Western world.
