Šį projektą sukurti autorę įkvėpė jos pačios pamąstymai apie santykį su laiku. Keldama būties klausimą – kodėl aš esu tokia, kokia esu? – ji bando rasti atsakymus, žvelgdama į bendraamžius, kuriuos įamžino jų pačių pasirinktoje vietoje, atskleidžiančioje, kas prisidėjo prie asmenybės formavimo. Nuo 18 val. Kauno Vinco Kudirkos viešosios bibliotekos Parko padalinyje (P. Lukšio g. 60) vyks E. Krukonytės kūrybos pristatymas „Žmogaus santykis su laiku, aplinka ir savimi per fotografiją“, kurio metu autorė plačiau papasakos apie savo kūrybą.

Po dešimtmečio prancūzų fotografas Thierry Girard grįžo fotografuoti Kauno

Sorry, this entry is only available in Lithuanian.

Pakviestas į Lietuvą fotomeno festivalio KAUNAS PHOTO, beveik dvi savaites Kaune kūrė fotografas iš Prancūzijos Thierry Girard. Ant peties nešinas stambiu trikoju ir prie jo pritvirtinta vidutinio formato kamera, fotografas skersai išilgai naršė Kauno mikrorajonus. Meninės rezidencijos metu T. Girard fotografavo Kauno miesto vaizdus, kūrė žmonių portretus.

Neseniai 70-ąjį jubiliejų atšventęs Thierry Girard (g. 1951 m. Nantas, Prancūzija) – fotografas iš vakarų Prancūzijos. Jo kūryba grindžiama maršruto ir kelionės motyvais, apmąstant meninį miesto ir priemiesčio kraštovaizdžių vaizdavimą. Fotografas renkasi maršrutus, kuriuose yra istorinių, literatūrinių, meninių ar kultūrinių reikšmių. 1984 m. jo darbai buvo apdovanoti Prancūzijos „Niépce“ premija („Le Prix Niépce“), kuri vainikavo daug žadančią karjeros pradžią ir leido jam surengti parodas buvusiuose Palais de Tokyo rūmuose bei Nacionaliniame fotografijos centre.

Pasak Virginijos universiteto (JAV) docento Ari J. Blatt, fotomenininkas T.Girard išgarsėjo kurdamas fotografines tikrovės vizijas, kurios mums primena, „kad net patys paprasčiausi ir niekuo neišsiskiriantys kraštovaizdžiai prisideda prie mūsų kolektyvinio vietos įsivaizdavimo“.

„Vengdamas istorinių miestų centrų, vaizdingų kaimų vaizdų ir kitų lankytinų vietų, dėl kurių verta „padaryti lankstą“ pasak „Michelin“ gido, tačiau mieliau rinkdamasis mažiau išvažinėtus kelius į vietas, pasižyminčias praeities ir dabarties susiliejimu, dažnai esančias kažkur už įprasto kelio, Girard tyrinėja vietas, kurios kitu atveju paliktų mus abejingais, bet kurios, kaip rodo jo fotografijos, galbūt turi daugiau istorijų, nei gali pasirodyti iš pradžių“, – 2019 m. apie T. Girard kūrybą rašė Ari J. Blatt.

Prieš 10 metų fotomenininkas jau lankėsi Kaune. KAUNAS PHOTO ilgalaikiai partneriai asociacija-leidykla „Diaphane“ bei festivalis „Photaumnales“ (Bovė, Prancūzija) eilę metų vykdė projektą „Kelionės tikslas – Europa“, kurio kontekste siuntė fotografus skristi į skirtingus miestus iš pigių skrydžių Bovė oro uosto. 2011 m. fotografui T. Girard teko kelionės tikslas – Kaunas. Tuomet atvykęs menininkas didelio ir vidutinio formato kamerų žvilgsniuose atvaizdavo Kauną kaip jauną, džiaugsmingą miestą, kurio portretai, žmogiški peizažai ir urbanistiniai sluoksniai buvo jautriai sujungti į vieną vasaros sapną. Kuratorių Fred Boucher ir Mindaugo Kavaliausko kvietimu, T.Girard po dešimties metų pertraukos vėl dokumentavo Kauną, šįkart turėdamas laiko pakitusį miestą atrasti iš naujo.

KAUNAS PHOTO – ilgiausiai be pertraukų rengiamas kasmetis tarptautinis fotomeno festivalis Lietuvoje ir Baltijos šalyse.. Aštuonioliktojo festivalio renginiai prasidės pirmosiomis rugsėjo dienomis. 2004 m.
