Exhibition - Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen: Step By Step, Daughters and Mothers in a Small Dancing School

Step by Step marks the Gallery’s third solo exhibition of photographs by documentarian Sirkka–Liisa Konttinen. This series follows daughters and mothers at a small dancing school in a coastal town in northeastern England during the 1980s. The maternal bonding, self expression, awkwardness and confidence provided by this joyful outlet nurture these girls and women while few other options for advancement or escape are available.
