MINDAUGAS GABRENAS
PHOTOGRAPHY

Mindaugas Gabrenas is Lithuanian fine art photographer currently based in Paris.

Humanities and social sciences background has nurtured his interest in people: there’s always a human presence in his pictures, even if barely perceptible. Author uses photography as a methodology for self-reflection. Personal states of solitude and perception of time are reflected in his works and one could read them, depending on intensity, as poetry, prose or even an autobiography.

Author pays much attention to the act of photography itself. He works in the traditional, non-digital, silver photographic medium using a variety of medium format film cameras including handmade ones. His exquisitely hand crafted black and white prints, which he makes in his own darkroom, reflect a sense of calm and thorough originality.

Mindaugas Gabrenas is an author of a number of personal and group exhibitions worldwide, his works have been published in the global media.
