Publisher's presentation :
"This book is the first publication of the Lithuanian filmmaker of international renown Sharunas Bartas' photographs, on the occasion of the retrospective of his films at the Centre Pompidou in Paris (05.02> 06.03.2016), of the release of his new film Peace to Us in Our Dreams (10.02.2016) and of the exhibition at Passage de Retz in Paris (02.02> 27.02.2016).
This book brings together forty photographs. Made during the preparation of his films without being connected to them, Bartas' photographs display a similar attraction to landscapes and their matter, to the raw traces of humanity they contain, to melancholic ruins, to warm faces.
While his filmography consists mostly of fiction, his photography grasp all the documentary sensitivity that is also at work in his cinema, like its almost shamanic relationship with nature and beings, balanced between pragmatism and poetry. Three unpublished poems of Bartas accompany his photographs."
Three poems by Sharunas Bartas, translated to French and English from Lithuanian and Russian.
Text by Sonia Voss in French and English.
