Recently, the district of Brazika has changed very rapidly: old, new or modern apartments are changing old buildings and apartments. Together with changing urbanism, residents, younger generation, the sensation of Brazilka’s myth began to disappear in the old district of Kaunas. Thus, the Italian artist Emanuela Colombo’s residence documented exactly this part of Žaliakalnis: Jonava, Varniai, Žemaičių streets and Savanorių avenue, a part of the district. In creating pictures of romantic images, portraiture of the people, or unexpected contrasts on everyday streets, the artist, in collaboration with the locals, created remarkable shots and returned to memory and memorized the remaining fragments of Brazilka, reminding of the history of the city and our continuous changes.
Emanuela Colombo after graduating in Communication Sciences at IULM in Milan, worked for almost 10 years in purchasing department of several companies in the area. Finally, she realized that it was not for her and decided to dedicate herself to her passion, photography. In 2007 Emanuela attended a Master in “Photography and Visual Design” at NABA in Milan. Since the beginning of 2007 she works with several NGOs to produce reportages, stories about their activities in Italy and abroad. Photographfer published her work on Italian and foreign magazines.
