Stepanka Stein and Salim Issa

<   >


Czech photographers Stepanka Stein and Salim Issa were commissioned in the 2004-5 to visit North East England, hosted by commissioning body Locus+.

'Ordinary Living' portrays people at leisure, escaping from ‘ordinary life.’   The large-format photographs reveal a day at the beach, a party on a public holiday, and even a day at the races to be situations pregnant with drama and poignancy, reflecting the beauty in the everyday.

‘Ordinary Living’ has been exhibited in the UK, Germany, Greece and Slovakia.
