An exhibition in the Skylight Gallery that explored the multiple identities of Liverpool and the Wirral, and reflected the reality and surreality of everyday life on Merseyside.

The Caravan Gallery is an artist-led project and mobile exhibition venue set up by Jan Williams and Chris Teasdale. Since 2000 they have travelled thousands of miles and exhibited in hundreds of locations from car parks and shopping centres to prestigious galleries in Britain and beyond. They use photography to document the way we live today, engaging with audiences from all walks of life by inviting them to respond to their work.

A photography competition was held during the exhibition, a huge thanks to everyone who submitted photos. The five winning photos were displayed in the exhibition from 23 September to 27 October 2013.
