During my four-month stay in Latvia in the summer of 2004, I travelled around a lot by car looking for objects for my diploma work in photography (see exhibition “Postcards from Latvia”). It’s a beautiful, not very populated country – with the exception of Riga and the surrounding region. And, it’s flat. The highest hill, the Gaizinkalns in the northeast of the country, is a mere 312m. Latvian Landscapes give way to endless horizons, channelling the viewer’s attention on the peace and simplicity of Latvia’s natural beauty.
