Richard Billingham was born in 1970 in Birmingham. In 1996 a selection of Billinghams’ photographs of his close family was published in the book Ray’s A Laugh. These pictures earned much critical acclaim and in 1997 he was awarded the Citibank Private Bank Photography Prize. In 1998 he was commissioned by Artangel to make Fishtank for BBC2, a 48min film also about his close family. Since then Billingham has continued to make photographs and videos, exhibit internationally and make photo books. He was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2001.
Matthew Raw has just finished his MA at the Royal College of Art where he has been developing sculptural ceramic forms that explore the movement of people; of particular interest is how and why people come to the UK. “I look for new ways in which language and text can coexist with form, fusing a relationship between the narrative and the structure.” He is currently an artist in residency at the V&A Museum’s new ceramic collection. Matthew was one of The Open West selected artists in 2009 and has also exhibited at Stroud House Gallery after his work was spotted at his University of Brighton degree show. He is currently showing at the International Biennale of Vallauris.
