A comprehensive look at the life of Vitas Luckus, (1943-1987) who was one of the most significant Lithuanian photography artists of the second half of the 20th century. In his work Luckus bridged tradition and the avant-garde, modernism and postmodernism. Along with Antanas Sutkus, Aleksandras Macijauskas, Romualdas Rakauskas, Algimantas Kunius, and other peers Luckus founded the base for the Lithuanian photography school. In original expression he greatly expanded the boundaries of the prevailing aesthetics in photography. Luckus worked both in artistic and applied photography: he was one of the most innovative creators of fashion and advertising photography.
