Antanas Sutkus: Planet Lithuania

Text by William A. Ewing, Thomas Schirmböck.

Humanist photographs documenting life in Lithuania during its occupation by the Soviet Union

Antanas Sutkus (born 1939) ranks among Europe's great humanist photographers. Although he lived and worked in occupied Lithuania on the periphery of the Soviet Empire, he profoundly influenced Soviet photography in terms of form and content. Sutkus developed his visual language in the 1960s, establishing the foundation for the Lithuanian school of photography. He was interested in absolutely everything: children, lovers and the elderly, modernity and tradition, joy and painful farewells, nature and the city.

Sutkus' photographs invariably revolve around Lithuania and its people; they were his "Kosmos" in which he found a place for everything, and he formulated his zest for their lives in his long-term project The People of Lithuania. Sutkus' undertaking was a bold one during the Cold War and under Soviet domination; his pictures were an expression of personal life behind the Iron Curtain.


PRAISE AND REVIEWS

New York Review of Books

Carole Naggar

In spite of this seclusion, Sutkus’s work is anything but primitive. The sophistication of this largely self-taught artist is all the more remarkable because it grew primarily from his intuition, grounded in his strong feelings of closeness and empathy for the people and situations he photographed.

Independent Photographer

Rosie Torres

Planet Lithuania demonstrates the full extent of his artistry, revealing a penetrative yet sensitive gaze to rival that of his significantly more celebrated contemporaries.
