Richard Billingham – “Ray’s a Laugh”

A long time ago, far, far away, in a rainy king-and-queen-filled land, in a colorful little-knick-knack, jigsaw-puzzle, cat-hair-filled, grease-streaked, filthy tiny fishbowl, baby Richie was born. Little Richie came into this lovely rainy little world born to proud parents, the drunk-unemployed-Ray and the devoted-enormous-“big”-Liz Billingham. Soon, little baby brother Jason would come along to join in the fun! Oh what wonderful places they will go! So starts the tale of Ray, Liz, Jason and lil’ Richard Billingham and their little journey through life in a little bitty box, in a tiny-poor corner of the world, called, Cradley Heath… unfortunately, things won’t quite turn out as planned.
