Often, we do not think about how people, things, emotions and environment influence us. Environment which surrounds us, shapes us over time and can direct one way or another. And what about the view we see through the window? We all have friends or acquaintances, who have interesting views through windows of their home or workplaces, where the city looks completely differently, showing its not yet seen “face”. The place where we live or work and what we see through the window affects our emotional and psychological state, well-being and life in general. Desire to understand how the view through the window affects people and was the main reason why I started this project.
Wanting to emphasize the landscape I do use people in my photographs. However, by showing elements of interior and keywords in the titles I give the viewer opportunity to create a picture of the person living or working there and become the viewer himself by looking through the window from his, his own or authors perspective.
Photography project “Private City Landscape” allows public to look through the windows of private apartments, former and existing power structures, educational institutions and see the city of Vilnius from a new perspective.
