“Nocturnal Creatures” is a photography project about the humans of big Metropolis by night. People are partying, going to art events, or just wandering around and minding their business. “What I was trying to do is to tell my own story through these people,” says the Vytenis Jankūnas.

All pictures are not staged, but rather a street photography, edited by the artist in his own way, erasing backgrounds and just leaving some narrative elements in it. People in Vytenis Jankūnas’ images become city dwellers without the actual city. They look like actors on a theater stage playing their own parts in New York at night.
