Agence VU - Antanas Sutkus
Antanas Sutkus

Antanas Sutkus is born in 1939 in Lithuania. He was one of the co-founders and President of the Photography Art Society of Lithuania.
He received the Lithuanian National Prize and Order of the Lithuanian Grand Duke Gediminas.
His main work was to document Lithuania through its population and its transformations.
While Sartre and De Beauvoir spent some time in Lithuania in 1965, Sutkus went along with them for a while. He took a picture with the figure of Sartre on white sand which is said to tell about his state of mind and ideas.

Sartre & Beauvoir : cinq jours en Lituanie

Au cours de l'été 1965, Jean-Paul Sartre & Simone de Beauvoir séjournent une courte semaine en Lituanie.
Antanas Sutkus, jeune photographe lituanien, les accompagne et immortalise les instants rares des deux personnalités et intellectuels hors du commun, accueillis par les écrivains lituaniens dans le contexte de la Guerre froide. Faut-il ajouter que Sartre refusait alors tous les reportages...
Les quelque quatre-vingts clichés se présentent comme un témoignage unique.
