Photography by The Caravan Gallery

The Caravan Gallery is, like the name suggests, a caravan. It is a visual arts project run by artists and psycho-geographers Jan Williams and Chris Teasdale who are on a mission to record the ordinary and extraordinary details of life. They are particularly drawn to absurd anomalies and curious juxtapositions, typical of places in transition and in the process of reinventing themselves.

arc commissioned Jan and Chris to get to know Hull, wander around, get lost a bit and photograph their findings. As newcomers to the city, many of us locals would probably agree with some of their observations of what makes Hull unique, but they have also captured interesting and witty idiosyncracies. The full collection of their findings is now on display in the arc building.
