I use photography as a means of self-expression, to express my interpretation of the world around me. Deeper interest in photography started in year 2007 after my son’s birth. I constructed images – often self portraits or took photographs of my friends. I was captivated by endless possibilities in the photography. After couple years I had my first small exhibition in a small town in Latvia, where I am originally from.
I am studying Contemporary Art and Contextualised Practice BA(Hons) at University of Highlands and Islands, in Inverness. During my studies I experimented using various mediums but returned back to photography.
Before taking photograph, I research theme I am going to work with, I draw sketches and start to collect things. I use digital camera and I edit images using Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop. My images are printed on archival papers, using archival prints and in limited editions.
