Rimaldas Viksratis

Image copyright Rimaldas Viksratis

Lithuania's Richard Billingham? Well that's what Martin Parr has called Rimaldas Viksratis, perhaps he is. The above image is from 1982, and the old fella with the tongue does look a bit RAY like. Viksratis was awarded the Arles Discovery Award for New Photography in 2009. So a discovery award at 55 years old. My friends the lesson is expect to play the long game, and forget all that under 35 shit, twelve months later and I am still banging on about the under 35 shit!

He has no website so try HERE, HERE, & HERE.
