“It seemed boring to me to take a picture of an ant banally running on the ground, so I took one and put it under a microscope. I am always looking for details, shadows and invisible corners. The main objective of photography is to be a discoverer” Kavaliauskas explained about the choice of the objective of his camera, in an interview for the ‘Insider’ media.
