Rimaldas Vikšraitis: Naked

Rimaldas Viksraitis takes pictures of people in the rural areas of Lithuania. He photographs people who live a simple life often accompanied and soaked by alcohol, who hardly have any perspectives and do not expect them either. Anyway they are not hopeless pictures; they are full of easiness and lightheartedness, they are uncomplicated and funny although the reality – seen from the outside – probably is anything but funny. Rimaldas however does not compromise the people, he emphasizes the humanity – he often shows them naked, at home or outside, in unpoetic, rough but sincere pictures. He does not show their brokenness but vulnerability, love, grief, madness – the full life.
