After a successful Pride of Place book launch in Sunderland in June, The Caravan Gallery is moving to Middlesbrough’s mima to continue their work about space and identity. Between Saturday 30th July and Saturday 17th September, Jan Williams and Chris Teasdale will be presenting a series of photographs of Britain in their extra{ordinary} exhibition, taken over the last fifteen years. Documenting the changing times as well as capturing the fine line between the real and surreal, it’s set to be an unflinching look at way people live in contemporary Britain.

The gallery are also asking what it’s like to live in Middlesbrough, encouraging the public to enter their own glimpses of Teesside into a photography competition. The competition runs until Sunday 17th July, with the most distinctive shots being turned into prints and displayed at an exhibition being held in a special temporary venue between Saturday 30th July and Saturday 27th August. Teasdale is encouraging the public to “look beyond the obvious and show us what’s special, unusual or perhaps distinctive in this part of the world.” Grab your cameras, this is one no amateur photographer will want to miss.
