For ten years Seattle-born photographer Andrew Miksys documented the village discos of rural Lithuania, where his family is originally from. Miksys first traveled to his homeland to meet some distant relatives back in the 90s, shortly after the collapse of the USSR. On his second visit he stumbled upon a small disco in the outskirts of a tiny village. Fascinated by the atmosphere and the people he met there, he set out to tour small towns around the country and photograph the places where teenagers unwind. Most of these clubs are located in Soviet-era culture houses, offering a perfect backdrop to a body of work about young people in Lithuania, a crumbling past, and the uncertain future of a new generation all together in one room.
