A look back at post-soviet nightclubs from Lithuania is a time-travelling photo series. It reveals a period when Europe was still licking its wounds after communism and people were creating a new culture. They were experiencing freedom again for the very first time in over 50 years.

Andrew Miksys grew up in Seattle, US, but in 1995, his parents decided to take him to their motherland – Lithuania. The young photographer decided to immortalize his visit by taking pictures of post-soviet nightclubs and how people partied there as opposed to how they had fun in the US.

These nightclubs were former soviet party offices transformed into small discos. Andrew Miksys became a regular in these nightclubs, taking photos from 1995 to 1999, in which he portrayed Lithuania’s youth and their lifestyle.
