We are pleased to be inviting Trimakas back to Glasgow after 26 years to launch his new publication Exits and deliver a Baltic Salt Print Masterclass – For information on attending please visit our website.

Exits documents the ‘performance of time’ whilst capturing exits to the Baltic Sea.

Gintautas Trimakas (b. 1958) is a Lithuanian photographer, a passionate practitioner of alternative photographic processes and a former teacher at the Vilnius Academy of Arts. Trimakas represents the so-called generation of conceptualists in Lithuania, who in the 1980s turned to the materiality of photography creating unique imprints, objects and installations. In his series Responses he photographed shadows with an old Nokia phone, but in the series Greeting he captured the sky, only later finding out that data errors had occurred in the files. Whereas in series Bicycle Stops he used a pinhole camera, which was put on the bicycle luggage rack and which documented the cityscapes in the direction of the sky. The exposure time coincided with coffee or cigarette breaks.
