The future that is past
Last warm days of autumn in my favorite seaside village Calella de Palafrugell, Spain.
Ricardas Jarmalavicius is an internationally acclaimed amateur photographer from Lithuania, famous for his vulnerable black-and-white photos, mostly taken with his iPhone.
A good photo is not an image but a mirror, says Ricardas. People see their stories, feelings, memories, fears, and expectations in this mirror.
Ricardas’ unique point of view on life is shaped by his childhood in an orphanage, prison guard experience, long-term work in journalism and public relations, books, and a colorful personal life.
Ricardas has received more than 90 international photography awards.
