Rimaldas Vikšraitis: Am Rand der bekannten Welt

04.02. - 29.04.2018

 

Photographer Rimaldas Vikšraitis lived for several decades in various small villages in the countryside of Lithuania. The region was affected by uprooting, poverty, alcoholism, and promiscuity. His images are made from the inside, without moral filter. His photographs tell about the essence of life, its depths, and pain but, nonetheless about unexpected deep friendship and joy.

After being nominated by Martin Parr Rimaldas Vikšraitis won the Discovery Award of the Arles photo festival in 2009. Now his images are being presented worldwide. We are happy to be the first to present this wonderful artist in Germany in his so far biggest show.
