Once again about Donelaitis, Nadruva

Marijampolė’s K.Donelaitis society held a beautiful evening in Petras Kriaučiūnas public library, welcoming of Valentinas Juraitis photo album NADRUVA.Donelaičio takais. Photo gallery was supplemented with recently published Valentinas Juraitis photo album “Nadruva”.  

To the participants of the evening, author revealed that in order to make this book cognitive he took historical facts and short text from the past while presenting today’s image of the area.

That is the principle of long-distance consultation. Detecting immovable objects, the author plays with light and shadow effects, and gives a new life to things and trees as if trying to bring the viewer back to the past: Karaliaučius, Įsrutis, Skaisgiriai, Pabėtai, Tolminkiemis... And every name of the place contains information, associations, all that’s possible having the largest amount of cultural heritage knowledge.
