August Johannes Luusmann was born on December 4, 1885, on the island of Aksi at Kaguotsa farm. At about twenty, he began to actively engage in photography. So far, around 500 of his photos have been found, reflecting the everyday life of small islands and coastal villages, people and historical events. These skillfully selected frames, as well as Luusmann’s writings, give a unique picture of the history of coastal Estonia.
