Berta Tilmantaitė, photojournalist and co-founder of Nanook met Tomas in Vilnius before the opening of his exhibition. They discussed drones, military, social media and why photojournalism is experiencing its “jazz phase” now.
Photojournalist Tomas van Houtryve doesn’t enjoy simple projects. For his photo series Blue Sky Days, he made a drone and travelled across America to photograph people gatherings similar to the ones from U.S. drone strike reports from Pakistan and Yemen. The powerful series got him the Infinity Award, one of the most important prizes for a photographer.
