This is a dark and disturbing exhibition about life in the villages of Lithuania.

Rimaldas Viksraitis’s images depict bewildered people living in a country ravaged by poverty and alcoholism.

Some may find the photographs voyeuristic, others may see them as social commentary.

Yet his work, which has been described as “slightly insane and wonderfully surreal”, will at least be intriguing.
