Antanas Sutkus: In MemoriamAntanas Sutkus: In Memoriam

Published by Steidl.
Edited by Thomas Schirmböck.

Lithuanian photographer Antanas Sutkus (born 1939) learned of the mass killing of the Jews during World War II itself, from his grandparents, experiencing shame and guilt for the atrocities committed behind the Vilijampole ghetto gates and the Ninth Fort. In 1988 Sutkus began photographing the Kaunas Jews who had escaped death in concentration camps; In Memoriam presents a selection of these portraits.

As far back as the 14th century, the Jews had been offered protection and support in Lithuania. Over the next 600 years they established their traditions there, with printing workshops and synagogues, libraries and gymnasiums, songs and legends. This vibrant branch of Lithuania’s cultural history was violently destroyed when 200,000 Jews were murdered and thrown into pits on forest edges, quarries and death camps. This book is a tribute to these people, and an expression of attempts at understanding, penitence, purification and rebirth.

Antanas Sutkus: Planet LithuaniaAntanas Sutkus: Planet Lithuania

Published by Steidl.
Text by William A. Ewing, Thomas Schirmböck.

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.
