THE CONNOR BROTHERS
Twins Franklyn and Brendan Conner were brought up within a secretive and highly controversial cult known as ‘The Family’. Born out of the hippy movement in 1968 and founded by David Berg ‘The Family’ was an extreme Christian cult whose members believed in something called ‘The System’. At sixteen the boys turned their backs on The Family and ran away from home. After several years riding the freight trains they settled in the Brooklyn area of New York. Their often humorous work is steeped in references to both historical and popular culture and presents an almost anthropological view of contemporary western society.
