Vilnius city streets are very interesting. And their names are pretty cool. Some are so interesting that I was really curious how those names came to life. And then I realised that I can create those stories myself. And I did.
Photo project “Talking streets” tells a story about Vilnius people who are very different from each other just like the streets they live in. Every sign was handmade and placed in his own street.
English speaking people: signs are in lithuanian, but I did my best to translate them.
