Photography exhibition “Forstate” featuring works by Danish photographer Stig Stasig will be exhibited from December 7 in Latvian Museum of Photography.

The exhibition “Forstate” is based on Stig Stasig’s 25 years old classic black and white film Leica street photos from the central Riga area – Maskavas Forstate. The images document the daily life of a marginalized population, mainly Russians and Belarusians, in the year after the Latvian independence from the Soviet Union in 1991.

VIKA EKSTA ANIMATED PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION „MOVING PHOTOGRAPHY”

17.08. – 5.11.2017

Photography exhibition “Moving Photography” featuring works by Latvian photographer Vika Eksta will be exhibited from 17th August in Latvian Museum of Photography.

Animated photography exhibition “Moving Photography” helps to study, interpret and improve the current exhibition of historical photography of the Latvian Museum of Photography, which is devoted to the development of photography media, by supplementing it with contemporary content. Animated photographs were taken while the author was working on objects exhibiting at the museum's permanent exhibition and with the museum staff, creating moving images in which these objects and people appear in the main role, thus, both reflecting on the media and technical development of photography, as well as allowing the viewer to see the historical exhibition “anew”.
