Ray & Liz

Ray & Liz

On the outskirts of Birmingham and the margins of society, the Billingham family perform extreme rituals and break social taboos as they muddle through a life decided by factors beyond their control. At times shocking and laced with an unsettling humour, three episodes from the early life of the artist unfold as a powerful evocation of the lived experience of growing up in the era of (Thatcherian) austerity. Famous British photographer Richard Billingham expands his reflection on the “still life” of the family, shooting in moving images a subjective landscape of negligence and loneliness.
