Karolis Usonis (b. 1993, Lithuania) is a photography-focused artist based in Chicago. During his studies at Loyola University Chicago, he focused on literary theory, political science, art history, and photography.

Stemming from vernacular narratives, Usonis' work lies between personal topics such as migration, historiography, and self-censorship. Oscillating between evidence and hearsay, Usonis explores what it feels like to stare within culturally self-referencing spaces and what it feels like to read meaning from the blank stares facing back.
