Text lith., engl. - Printed by “Kopa”. - The book Vanishing by Vytautas Pletkus (1955) contains photographic series on the slow process of destruction. The photographer records these signs now, at the beginning of the 21st century, after Lithuania has joined the European Union. Houses, fences, sculptures, objects and places have become useless, and are slowly sinking into oblivion, making their own parallel reality in lost time. The captured places are untouched by a form of photography that shows no hallmarks of beauty. The symbols of this landscape could be the empty windows of abandoned houses, or the walls of closed factories.
