I would have started with a witty recount of how the two photographers met – I’ve heard it was in Britain, but that’s as far as I can expound. So I’ll tell you what I do know. World renowned British photographer, Martin Parr, has joined Lithuanian photographer Rimaldas Viksraitis, to produce a splendid collection of hyper-real – teetering on absurd – photographs.

A man and woman in discussion, Viksraitis’ work behind

Titled the Real World, the exhibit is on display at the Anzenberger Gallery, where we attended the vernissage. The composition of the two sets of photographs vis-à-vis one-another forms a remarkable collection; Parr’s photographs appear vibrantly colored next to Viksraitis’ high-contrast black-and-white images.

The exhibit will be showing through May, though for those who didn’t attend the opening night, both photographers have already left town.
