Thanks to the author, for the first time the city of Šiauliai is presented not through traditional images of the city, not through what is created in the city, but through those who create it. The city does not appear by itself, it is created by people. But its creators often remain in the shadow of their work. The city stays while the creators leave. The publication features both artists of honorable age and those who are just beginning their journey. They are people the author knows. According to V. Dambrauskas, some of them were his teachers, from others he learned himself. They are people who have fascinated or impressed the author. Some of them radiate wisdom, others exude youth. The appearance of young artists who are just beginning their creative path in the photo album is like an advance, an encouragement to work towards making the city's name known. In this context, the city is presented as a symbol of intergenerational renewal, of the transmission of experience from one generation to the next.
