While retouching digital images, Gytis Skudzinskas uses silver photographic paper instead of a mousepad. After he is finished, he develops the paper, which reveals only the traces of manipulation and the pursuit of a perfect image. The retouched photograph itself remains invisible to the viewer.
Gytis Skudžinskas – Born in 1975 in Lithuania, works and lives in Vilnius. In 1999-2003 he studied at Vilnius Academy of Fine Arts, Klaipeda Department of Visual design, in 2005 he was awarded the MA of visual arts.

In his works the author uses different forms of expression – photography, drawing and installation. In the recent times he chooses photography more often – the way of constructing the view which allows not only to create a piece of art but also a multilayer presentation with the shade of authentic documentary.
