Join the French-Lithuanian Chamber of Commerce in celebrating the day of the restoration of the State of Lithuania on 22 February.
Let’s gather to taste wine with a Lithuanian connection and enjoy some artworks at Vyno Klubas.
We will have the privilege to have photographs from Antanas Sutkus.
Antanas Sutkus is a Lithuanian photographer who, together with his fellow photographers, had formed a completely new and unique direction of this art in Soviet past and who has had a great influence on the development of photography in Lithuania. In 2001–2002 he won the Erna&Victor Hasselblad Foundation (Sweden) grant Documentation and Conservation of Antanas Sutkus’ Archive of Photographs. Later on in 2011 he was nominated to the Deutsche Borse Photography Prize, decorated with The Order of the Republic of France for Art and Literature in 2015 and with Dr. Erich SOLOMON Prize, Germany in 2017. Since 2018, three books have been published in collaboration with STEIDL Publishing House: Planet Lithuania (2018), Pro Memoria (2020), Children (2021). The fourth book “Street Photography” is ready to be published and the fifth book “Women“ in preparation stage.
The images by Antanas Sutkus reflect the realities of human life in its authentic, but always elegant and incredibly vivid environment. Sutkus is a witness of everyday life cosmos.
