Juozas Cernius

Currently based in Nairobi, Kenya, Canadian-born photographer Juozas Cernius  has recently published a book of photographs of Africa, with texts by Anita Vizsy. Juozas has a BFA from Concordia University in Montreal and an MFA from the School of Art Institute of Chicago.

His work has been exhibited in both the U.S.  (venues including the Dumbo Art Center in Brooklyn, the Central Utah Art Center, and Denise Bibro Gallery in New York) and Canada (with a solo exhibition at Articule Gallery in Montreal) and is a contributor to AFC, the New York based contemporary art blog.

Making images in diverse settings and situations, Juozas’ ability to make engaging, sensitive and sometimes humorous imagery is evident and we are very happy to present some of his work here. Thanks again Juozas!
