Urte Kaunas

I am a story-teller, a photographer and a spectator.

 My story began in 1990 in a country called Lithuania. At early years, music was a big part of my life. I played piano for over eighteen years, but photography was always near. I took pictures of my friends and home town. It is a part of my life, a story and a memory that I hold on to.

 Piano studies didn’t exceed my expectations and weren’t something that I imagined it would be, so I decided to change my profession in to a hobby and a hobby in to a profession. Wondering about the future and looking for a place to settle, I moved to Germany and started my photography studies at University of Art and Design.

 I am interested in peoples relationships. No matter if it is between a man and a women or a daughter and a mother.
