Description

Visvaldas Morkevičius is a Lithuanian visual artist. His photographic projects have been featured in solo and group exhibitions across Europe and in museum and private collections such as the MO Museum, Lewben Art Foundation, SEB Bank, and the Tesonet Cyber City art collection. He gained prominence with the publication of his first photography book “Public Secrets” in 2015, and in 2021 he was awarded the the Riga Photography Biennial – NEXT prize and the ISSP Gallery Award “Seeking the Latest in Photography!”

According to the artist himself, he uses photography anthropologically, employing a variety of photographic aesthetics so that he can manipulate perception, the awareness of time, and a sense of experience mixed with the context of the moment. Morkevičius sees the medium of photography as one of the most accurate for recreating reality and, at the same time, highly malleable when used in metaphorical forms. His projects are self-analytical and intimate, yet not devoid of clearly universalistic qualities.
