I am a photojournalist and documentary photographer from Vilnius, Lithuania. My background consists of a curious blend of professional figure skating, film and Persian language studies, and almost a decade of life on the road journeying everywhere from Nouakchott to Jakarta and from Helsinki to Khartoum. I am an alumnus of FAMU (Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague) and London Middlesex University, a member of the Lithuanian Photographers' Association, Lithuanian Journalists' Union and a recent graduate of VII academy masterclass “Photojournalism and Documentary Photography with Maciek Nabrdalik and Mary Gelman”. In 2021 I joined Redux Pictures as a contributing photographer.
My work has been published by The Guardian, Le Monde, Stern Magazine, Libération, Le Figaro, De Standaard, La Vie, NRC Handelsblad, Lonely Planet, The Calvert Journal, NARA, Chai Khana, The Sun Magazine, Royal Photographic Society Journal and others. I am currently based in Vilnius and besides taking photo assignments I also work as a local fixer. My most recent clients include Sky News, TV2 Norway, RAI, ARTE, Radiotelevizione Svizzera, Danish TV channels DR and TV2, TT (National Swedish News agency), Aftonbladet, NRC Handelsblad, Le Monde, Dagens Nyheter, Weekendavisen and Liberation.
