This is the first article about people who have talent in Rietavas.
Let me introduce Mantas Viržintas a 29 years old photographer in Rietavas that is really passionate about photography.
Mantas begun to practice photos few years ago in playing with his camera and taking pictures of animals or nature: A butterfly in the air, a cat on the sofa and a dog another day, a flower, a bee…
But this is above all his passion for memory, that explains why Mantas enjoys photographies. Indeed, we don’t have the device created yet that allow us to come back to the past, at least the photography can allow us it just little bit.
This is always funny to compare the things before and after. If you want to know how the class looked before or see how you looked as a baby or youngster…And after you begin to be nostalgic or think that you were dressed in a funny way and it seemed ridiculous comparing to now. This is why photography is so special.
In a nearby future, Mantas plans to organise exhibition of portraits of an old people, because portraits also can tell a lot about personality and memories. Moreover, He thinks to write biographies about them too… So, we wish him good luck for his project!
Below, examples of his pictures
