“History is always written by the winners. The same applies to the history of photography. Without such a powerful tool as information sharing and communication through museums, galleries, the media and various publications, we would never have heard of such artists as Avedon, Newton, Cartier-Bresson, Cindy Sherman and Nan Goldin. But the artists who lived behind an iron curtain, never had an access to these powerful tools. Thus, this book brings Vitas Luckus back to the history of world photography into which, despite his exceptional talent he was not able to get in because of the political system of the time.” K. Candrowicz

“Vitas Luckus (1943-1987) is one of the most significant Lithuanian photography artists of the second half of the 20th century. In his work Luckus bridged tradition and the avant-garde, modernism and postmodernism. Along with Antanas Sutkus, Aleksandras Macijauskas, Romualdas Rakauskas, Algimantas Kun#ius, and other peers Luckus founded the base for the Lithuanian photography school. In original expression he greatly expanded the boundaries of the prevailing aesthetics in photography. Luckus worked both in artistic and applied photography: he was one of the most innovative creators of fashion and advertising photography.”
