The photographers have explained:

"We photographed these Thong's (sic) at Newcastle's traditional Quayside market during a residency for Northern Architecture. Sage Gateshead, a newly built concert venue designed by Norman Foster on the opposite side of the River Tyne, provides a slick backdrop We enjoy the contrast between high and low status subject matter and were glad the market hadn't fallen victim to gentrification. The 2 for £5 deal on thong's didn't seem that great though!"
