Like There’s No Tomorrow / Tarsi nebūtų rytojaus
“Like There’s No Tomorrow” is a new book on young Lithuanian photography. Works from 12 emerging artists are presented in an innovative form that invites a dialogue between different photographers’ works, acquainting the viewer with the new tradition in photography and its contemporary post-Internet expression. The works in the publication reveal the shifting aesthetic of young generation photographers, new overtones and the medium’s relationship with objects, all of which are put into a context by four essays by international critics of photography. “Like There’s No Tomorrow” presents photography that so far has been rarely seen in Lithuania and aims to facilitate artistic and critical dialogue around the new ideas this photography carries.
