"Attention to life, which often remains invisible to the majority of society, distinguishes Požerskis from other representatives of Lithuanian humanist photography, whose work is usually not limited by themes intended for a specific group of society. Požerskis does not photograph "Lithuanian people" (that is the name of A. Sutkaus's series of photographs, which has continued for more than half a century), but captures the residents of old people's homes, children in the hospital ("Ligoninė", 1976-1982), the blind ("Tarp svetis ir tamsos", 2014) or the little Alfons met in the province ("Mažasis Alfonsas", 1992-2008). The photographer does not shy away from highlighting the otherness of ordinary life or the existence of communities or individual people on the margins of "normal" society, and only then does he look for human values ​​in it. This is how the conflict and drama of "The Last Home" is born - the social situation and their own bodies no longer allow the grandparents to live a normal life, but they do not give up everyday joys and preserve their human dignity. The photographs of this series seem to open the very essence of human existence and capture that stage of life when "the body is dying and the spirit must prepare for its last journey."
