Inside The Unique World Of Post-Soviet Nightclubs In Lithuania

Andrew Miksys grew up in Seattle, but in 1995 he found himself visiting to Lithuania, the land of his parents. There, Miksys began to discover his roots and capture the flavor of his home country through photography.

Sometime during his year-long voyage through the country in 1999, he began to visit an old nightclub. His regular visits soon lead to his becoming acquainted with the club goers.

It wasn't long before he was accepted by the regulars there and made the club his social hub for the next ten years.

The photos Miksys took while frequenting these little village clubs record a country undergoing a changing social climate. Lithuania was controlled by the Soviet government until 2004 when it finally joined the EU.

These photos capture the time in-between when Soviet offices were converted into dance halls and clubs to party in.
