“I photographed Jonas and everything around him. I worked for him at Anthology for over 10 years (1990 – 2001). I took photos at his house, in bars and streets of New York, during movie premieres, during fundraising events, concerts, auctions. With friends and fellow filmmakers, with university students and professors, with people who came to meet him and say thank you for his help or films, with art collectors and Nobel laureates. I used to visit Jonas even after I moved to Lithuania. After his death, I collected all the slides and negatives where his face was. More than 300 hundred images have been collected.” explains A.
