April in London
Trip to Israel
At the end of 2017 I went to Israel to see with my own eyes the ancient living history of mankind and the exceptional surroundings.
“Kaleidoscope of New York City”, September 5 -27 in Palanga, Lithuania. “Ramybė” gallery Vytauto st. 35.
“Kaleidoscope of New York”, July 29 – August 23, 2015 in Vilnius (Marija and Jurgis Šlapeliai house-museum, Pilies g. 40). These double-exposure colour photographs depict the daily life of New York in a multifaceted way.
Q-14, Vilnius 2014
In November-December a few photographs from my series “Kaleidoscope of New York” took part in the 3rd Lithuanian contemporary art quadriennale. Exhibition took place at the Artillery Bastion of Vilnius Defensive Wall (Bokšto St. 20/18), which is part of the National Museum of Lithuania, and at Arka Gallery (Aušros Vartų St. 7) in Vilnius.
In 2014 I published a book of my black and white photographs of Vilnius from the 80-ies. The book bears the title “Vilniaus senamiestis ir jo gyventojai” (Vilnius old town and its residents) and can be purchased here: http://www.amazon.de/Vilniaus-Senamiestis-Ir-Jo-Gyventojai/dp/300046428X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1427107627&sr=8-1&keywords=vilniaus+senamiestis
Vilnius Photographic Gallery, 2014
In July-August my black and white photography series “Vilnius old town and its residents” was presented to the Lithuanian audience (in Vilnius Photographic Gallery, Stiklių 5, Vilnius), after being shown in Switzerland in 1993. These photographs of my hometown, taken in the 80ies, depict the life that in Soviet times officially did not exist.
European Parliament and European Commission, 2013
On the occasion of the Lithuanian Presidency of the EU Council my exposition “Lithuania: nature, people, architecture…” is being shown in European Parliament and European Commission buildings in Luxembourg. I chose to represent my country by these three aspects – its nature and landscapes, its people and its architectural buildings, both urban and rural (altogether 80 photographs). Some photographs were taken some twenty years ago, some were brand new.
Marija and Jurgis Šlapeliai house-museum, 2012
In July‒August my series “Colors of India” was exhibited in Vilnius (Marija and Jurgis Šlapeliai house-museum , Pilies g. 40). This series emerged after my journey to India in 2000. These large and colourful double-exposure photographs depict the life in India which freely pours into the camera and blends into expressive pictures. Different things: the children happily playing outside without any toys, the mundane textures, the animals grazing on the litter and the dignified people patiently doing their hard labour could join into unusual coexistence but the feeling remains that it’s all permeated by a nourishing and supporting harmony.
