As photo gallery, were extremely happy to present the exhibition RETROSPECTIVE by Ramūnas Danisevičius with the VERNISSAGE on the 4th of November 2022.
Ramūnas Danisevičius, was not only participating during the exhibition opening, but also during the rest of the weekend, which were whole 2 days dedicated for meeting the gallery visitors and photography lovers. This is becoming a tradition which means that when we have the exhibition opening on Friday, the photographer or artist is in the gallery meeting the visitors.
This was the first personal exhibition for Ramūnas Danisevičius in Sweden, in Scandinavia and in Northern Countries. We have received very positive response from the critics, local photographers, and gallery visitors.As a curator for this exhibition, first I am honored to be working with Ramūnas, and find it special and even sentimental what we share the same motherland.
It was not hard to decide which works Ramūnas will show in this exhibition, the same applies to the decision which photographer we will bring from Lithuania to Sweden first, because we felt that we just must do it.Most of the photographs in this exhibition have won the awards or were nominated.
All of them are special. None of them are digitally manipulated that makes them even more special.
Here comes some words by my partner and gallerist Johan Rosengren who describes Ramūnas photography: “Creating iconic photography with a gentle eye for the subject, bringing it almost alive with his expertise. A dose of humor, a pinch of realism, a splash of beauty and a good dose of sensualism makes his photos something very special”.
The event was arranged in collaboration with the Lithuanian culture attaché in Sweden, Finland, and Denmark Liana Ruokyte Jonsson, which was also opening the exhibition with extremely beautiful speech and supported by the Lithuanian Culture Institute.
Sadly this, was the last day of the exhibition, but we can cheer You up with good news that some of his works You will be able to see during coming collective exhibition COLLECTIVE 2022 starting on the 7th of December 2022.
During the collective exhibition You can collect Your favourite pieces of art the same day You visit the exhibition and buy it.
And You will be able to find a selection of Ramūnas Danisevičius photography on our website.
