About Emilija Petrauskiene
Born in 1981 in Vilnius. Now working as a family doctor. Art and later photography was always my field of interest besides studies and full time job. I started taking photographs more than 10 years ago all learning by myself and with online communities. The prime aim of learning how to shoot nice photos was to create beautiful family album, but all went further. Now using almost only analogue techniques I capture my everyday life and create Silver Herbarium. Analogue, slow photography is like a mindfullness for me. To set the camera, to compose image and to wait for the right moment. You can never hurry the process.
