The photographers have explained:

"Scotland is a favourite stomping ground for The Caravan Gallery and we have enjoyed a long association with Street Level Photoworks in Glasgow who commissioned us to undertake a tour of the city for Glasgow International Festival. One of our favourite tour locations was The Barras market which still, somehow, manages to hang on despite efforts to gentrify Glasgow's East End. This image was taken when we returned for our Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games residency. A trip to The Barras to stock up with clootie dumpling and document market life is always a top priority. We were happy to see that Glaswegian humour and handwritten signs are still in evidence."
