I am a photographer from a coastal town Klaipeda in Lithuania. A small community of classmates and a teacher becomes a reflection of greater society in my latest project “I WILL”. I invited 29 5th graders (all between the ages of eleven and twelve) to pose at the blackboard in a classroom. They were asked to complete the sentence “I will be”. Everyone’s world blooms out in a portrait.

A combination of body language, each thought and the way it was scribbled on the blackboard tells a story.

The simplicity of days is so delusive. Common days conceal uncommon revelations. In every tiny life there is a sensation of the great life breathing.
