Rimaldas Viksraitis (born 1954) cycles around the desolate farms of his native Lithuania with a camera tied to his bike. The resulting photographs expose the post-Soviet disintegration of village life, against a funny-sad backdrop of perennial drunkenness and buffoonery. The book’s images were selected by famed photographer Martin Parr, who describes Viksraitis’ works as “slightly insane and wonderfully surreal.”
