Four generations: grandparents, parents, children and grandchildren. All gathered in the gardens once planted by the grandfather in his young years.
Eighteen family members took part in the latest photo shoot by award winning Lithuanian artist Viktorija Vaisvilaite Skirutiene. And the results are magical.
‘In today's hectic world, families often spend more time apart than together. Amazing things can happen when a family comes together - in picture and in life. It was real pleasure working with such a wonderful family. Everyone was very supportive and worked together to create unforgettable atmosphere. We all gathered in the garden since early hours in the morning. That's when the light is the most special. All day we spent surrounded by blossom trees, talking, joking. I wanted to take my time. Photography is about catching that one special moment, says Viktorija.
Photo artist Viktorija Vaisvilaite Skirutiene narrates everyday life stories. She strongly believes that magic thrives in every home, in every family routine. ‘I believe there are such brief moments in life that unlock some secret doors when little pieces of the world come into exact positions. Common days conceal uncommon revelations. I take pleasure in grasping the Moment like this and dwelling inside. In every tiny life there is a sensation of the great life breathing’.
