I Photographed The Most Colorful Old Garage Doors Of Lithuania

There I stood on Prusu Street with 500 garage doors staring at me, a relic from the past inviting me to engage with a world in which there was no IKEA, no conspicuous consumption, and cars broke down. I accepted their challenge.This is how this series of photographs of garage doors was born.

By documenting these objects that are, most likely, about to disappear from Lithuanian society, I wished to communicate to the viewer the ambivalent, aesthetic, but also human significance of these garage doors.

Beautifully painted, these doors do not need be explained to the beholder. It is the fascinating play of colour and texture that I attempted to capture with my camera.

Since I don't belong to the Bored Panda community, I'm late to finding this web site and thus these impressive photos. I'm of Lithuanian descent (obvious from my first name!) and I've been to Lietuva a couple of times and I too noticed that Lithuanians love color, more so than, say, many Americans. Last time I went in 2005, I tried to document the colorful fishing cottages (and their gardens) of Palanga. Several inhabitants of that seaside town told me those brightly painted homes were fast disappearing. Unfortunately I didn't bring my good camera with me so I managed only very pedestrian photos with the store bought camera I had on me. But I love these photos of garage doors---they capture the spirit that I myself tried to capture. Well done!

Fabulous! This took me back to my childhood when we'd play cricket with garage doors marked with chalk acting as stumps. Good work, Agne.
