In late 2008, young photographer from Lithuania, Paul Paper, took a trip around
Europe for a project he decided to call Photodiaries. Before he left home Paul
spread news of his travels, looking for places
and people who would host him on his way.
Fifty sofas, beds and mattresses in 41 cities
and towns were offered and a route map was drawn up. In the end it took him eight weeks
to visit 15 sites across the continent.
This project portrays Europe as of 2008 trough the eyes of the author: people he met and events that occurred on the trip. While very personal and intimate, it remains a universal glimpse
into the joys, fears and loneliness of the solo
long distance traveler.
Project was presented in exhibitions in Lithuania and Denmark. In addition to that Café Royal published a zine with pictures from the trip.
