A WEDDING IN STRENCI
From the 11th of February the wedding photos are displayed at the Latvian Photography Museum. Taking photos at weddings is old as photography itself. In the beginning those were images taken in a photo salon – a bride and a groom alone, or together with their closest guests. After a time, photographers got invited to almost every wedding. When a photographer came to a wedding, pictures were taken inside the house or in the courtyard. Taking a group picture of all the guests became a tradition. The ceremony of the wedding was also photographed. These kinds of pictures are in the Strenču collection as well. In 2004, Latvian Photography Museum acquired a collection of 13 000 photo-plates from the photo studio of Strenči, with the support of the “Latio” real estate company. The collection spans the period from 1909 until the 1950's.
