New art album – photography book "Dance With Me" by Vytenis Jankūnas

The Lewben Art Foundation together with Lithuanian Expatriate Art Foundation has published new art album – photography book "Dance With Me" by Vytenis Jankūnas. This photo album would probably not have come into being were it not for the global pandemic that struck in 2020.

Photography book "Dance With Me" by Vytenis Jankūnas published by the Lewben Art Foundation

Vytenis Jankūnas emigrated to the United States in 1995. He has been observing New York from the inside for over twenty years and has been chronicling its metropolitan body through his photo lens, illustrating its continuously pulsating life. However, since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, the artist has been capturing in New York something we have all been seeing almost all over the world — an empty unknown.

The four parts of the album make up four stories of New York throughout the pandemic, opening up various aspects of a single era, and at the same time merging it all into a single narrative.
