Algimantas Kunčius

Kunčius’ work focuses on figurative photographs in both portrait and landscape formats. Their reserved expression is characterised by a subtle gradation of tones. Kunčius’ photographs stand out for their thoughtfulness and philosophical approach to everyday phenomena. Sundays is one of his most famous series, immortalising the participants of church holidays and feasts in Lithuanian villages and coastal towns. It observes rural people from a socio-anthropological perspective, recording their relationships and connections with the environment. The series was censored during the Soviet era due to its religious content.
