I am a Latvian lens-based artist currently living in Rotterdam, Netherlands. In 2019 I graduated from photography program at The Royal Academy of Arts, The Hague and in 2020 I was part of Fotodok New Talent Program Lighthouse.
The different topics I delve into are all motivated by my interest in critical assessment of our place as individuals in society and the natural world. An interest that has stayed with me ever since studying cultural anthropology.
Currently I working on a project that is an attempt on reclaiming and re-imagining the pagan beliefs of my own cultural background in the current context of societal change and climate breakdown.
And I should also learn how to sound less serious.
