Camera Oscura, published in conjunction with an exhibition at the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno, features a selection of photographs taken using both large-format and digital pinhole cameras . The results are warm, intimate images, focusing primarily on landscapes. And while the images shot using traditional film cameras and toned to deep sepias take on the look of immutable antiquities, the digital work is more like a series of hazy memories, providing an interesting counter-point with its fuzzy coloration and off-kilter composition.
Originally from Lithuania, Kuzmickas attended the graduate School of Architecture at the University of Utah. Since 1996, he has lived and worked as a photographer in Las Vegas, Nevada.
