For the first time Kaunas Photography Gallery will represent Lithuanian photography books published by various publishers from Lithuania at FORMAT photobook market in Derby.
FORMAT international photography festival was established in 2004 and today it is one of the UK’s leading international contemporary festivals of photography and related media.
Kaunas photography gallery extends the long publishing tradition in Lithuania, and now not only concentrates on simply presenting photographers, but also on continuing research into Lithuanian photography through individual perception. Thanks to its successful publishing activities, Lithuanian photography is winning greater recognition than ever before. It is gradually becoming more acknowledged on the international scene, and is featured at major international photography book events.
At photobook market visitors will find the books published also by Lithuanian photographers association, NoRoutine Books, ARÖK, Kultūros meniu and ect.
