Portfolio Happiness in Lithuania
Happiness in Lithuania is a photographic typology of happiness, which lays bare banality, vanity, and the fact that many are content with the mere outward image of happiness. Although it contains a hint of irony, this project goes beyond national borders and calls for supporting the politics associated with the ethics of unwillingness.
