ABOUT

BIO

Born in 1997 in Kaunas, Lithuania I am a freelance documentary, street and fine arts photographer, currently based on Lake Iseo, Italy. Living between Italy and Lithuania I am a graduate of the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography program at the Paris College of Art. My work is characterised by the genres of documentary, street and fine arts photography. Although I started out producing digital imagery, I primarily use 35mm film now. The choice of subject matter for my photographic work stems from my interest in the rising beauty industry and its iteration of values and priorities in today’s society. As a documentary photographer, I capture such changes in our society, and question them morally.
