About

DSC_0244

 

I am a Latvian photographer based in Dublin, Ireland. Born in 1988, I moved to Dublin in 2005. I first discovered my interest in photography in 2006 by attending a graduate show by photography students of St. Kevin’s College.

I constantly continue studying photography to improve my skill and technique.

I work mainly with conceptual street photography and fashion. The lack of people in my street photographs I make up with my work in the studio. I draw inspiration from the city I live in and amazing characters that surround me. Occupied with the idea of the microspaces I spend a lot of time looking at the ground and pointing my lens at the objects that most of time are considered not to be worth photographing.
