Saturday Night Street / On the Lash is a long-term collaboration between street photographers Maria Maza and Hazel Plater, members of the NE1 Street Collective.

Our project documents and celebrates Newcastle's party city reputation through candid street shots captured on our regular Saturday night photowalks. The photographs in this exhibition, many taken in challenging conditions – lack of or uneven lighting, freezing weather, etc., reveal the stories of numerous nights out, from hen and stag dos to Halloween costumes, from group antics to solitary walking home at the end of the night, and reflect our admiration of the way the people of Newcastle celebrate, wholeheartedly surrendering to having the best possible time, every Saturday night in the Toon.
