Ray's a Laugh.
Photographs and text by Richard Billingham.
Scalo, New York, 1996. 112 pp., 75 color illustrations, 8½x11".
In the tradition of Nan Goldin's Ballad of Sexual Dependency, this book is a document of Richard Billingham's frighteningly dysfunctional family. His father, Raymond, is a chronic alcoholic; his mother, Elizabeth, an obsessive pet owner; and his brother Jason, an aimless drug addict. The photographs communicate the violence and squalor of their poverty-stricken life. This book lays bare one of the last remaining photographic taboos: the dark side of one's family.
