This book catalogues the recent White Space Gallery exhibition of one Lithunia's most influential photographers, Algirdas ekus, bringing together some of his most iconic works from his 1970s archives. For over 30 years, while officially working as a camera man on a Soviet TV and radio channel, ekus cultivated photography without any specific trend or direction: without proper topics, objects of artistic research, and conceptual projects, choosing the aesthetics of amateurism instead. This strategy enabled ekus to balance between the underground and official Soviet art scene, between collectivism and individualism. His work has influenced many photographers from the former Soviet Union, including Boris Mikhailov, Alfonsas Budvytis, Vytautas Balcytis, Remigijus Pacesa and Gintaras Zinkevicius. In 2010 he was the subject of a major retrospective at The National Art Gallery of Lithuania. Ekus' photographs are indistinct, blurred, void of any order, messy compositions; toneless, soft, reduced images, and unexciting, nonessential content. He does not title his photographs or indicate where and when they were taken. He proclaims that photography has to be taken back to its origins: to the moment of fixing when the very act of photography becomes an object of art. This book is a profound statement against today's indifference and alienation. Its content is primarily emotional, the images are light, intimate and warm, seemingly from a country that no longer exists.
