extra {ordinary} is a national touring exhibition of over 100 colour photographs taken between 2000-2014. Astutely observed, thought provoking and often hilarious, The Caravan Gallery’s images focus on the extraordinary details of everyday life and a unique record of social change since the millennium. extra{ordinary} gives the viewer an insight into the reality and surreality of everyday life in 21st Century Britain, seeking out and celebrating the curious, the unusual, the typical and the absurd.
