The black and white pictures displayed focus upon nostalgic landscapes of Vilnius, mysterious courtyards there it seems that time had stopped decades ago, streets that seem to be known by all, but captured by the authors’ camera to reveal something new, citizens of Vilnius, the city which is resilient to time and its events that take place here and inevitably rush by to the past.
