Last warm days of autumn in my favorite seaside village Calella de Palafrugell, Spain.

Ricardas Jarmalavicius is an internationally acclaimed amateur photographer, famous for his vulnerable black-and-white photos.

A good photo is not an image but a mirror, says Ricardas. People see their stories, their feelings, memories, fears, and expectations in this mirror.

Ricardas’ unique point of view at life is shaped by his childhood in an orphanage, prison guard experience in the army in Russian North, rich journalistic and public relations experience, books, and a colorful personal life.

Ricardas has received more than 60 international photography awards.
