Antanas Sutkus
a free sight



The exhibition “Antanas Sutkus: a free sight” shows for the first time in Latin America the work of one of the greatest contemporary photographers of Eastern Europe.


Born in 1939, the Lithuanian photographer Antanas Sutkus, grew up in a difficult reality. In 1940, when he was only one year old, the Soviet Union annexed his country to the communist bloc, in the middle of World War II. However, even under such adverse conditions, the artist became one of the greatest photographers of his time. The artist ignored the totalitarian ideals imposed by the Soviet regime and accumulated, in more than 40 years, a vast body of work that portrays the simple daily life of his people. Only in 1991, when the independence of his country was officially recognized, could his work finally be fully revealed to the world.
