Ricardas Jarmalavicius is an internationally acclaimed amateur photographer from Lithuania, famous for his vulnerable black-and-white photos, mostly taken with his iPhone.

A good photo is not an image but a mirror, says Ricardas. In this mirror, people see their stories, feelings, memories, fears, and expectations.

Ricardas views photography as not simply capturing moments as they happen but as a very vulnerable art, like a secret glance at a stranger’s diary.

Ricardas’ unique point of view on life is shaped by his childhood in an orphanage, prison guard experience, long-term work in journalism and public relations, books, and a colorful personal life.

Additionally, Ricardas is also an experienced strategic communication consultant and the founder of a leading Lithuanian public relations company Publicum.

He was born in 1966 in Lithuania but considers himself a citizen of the world.

Ricardas has received more than 100 international photography awards. He has also had photos exhibited in France, Hungary, Slovakia, Poland and Lithuania.
