Jan Bułhakas (1876–1950), the most famous photographer of images of Vilnius in the first half of the 20th century, has spent almost his entire mature life in this city. Located here before the First World War, he worked as a photographer for the city, witnessed and participated in his life – the camera captured historical and cultural events, photographed historical personalities and ordinary woolen, ecclesiastical and ethnographic celebrations, and documented architectural monuments.
Photographs published in the book are a visual vilnius architectural studio that reveals the photographer's ability to use the natural light source in erm-worthy architectural compositions and create a monumental view of the historical city by combining vilnius landscape with architecture.
This publication of Mr Bułhako's photographs is an impressive visual story created by the photographer about Vilnius, his art monuments, history and people for anyone who wants to know the old city.
