As a congratulation gift to one of the most significant Latvian photographer Gunārs Binde in his 80th birthday the exhibition “Binde in front of the object-lens” will be presented in the 2nd floor of the Latvian Museum of Photography from 11 January till 2 February.

The curator art historian Sarmīte Sīle points out: “This exhibition is unique. Authors of the exhibited works are world-famous photographers who are friends and colleagues of Gunārs Binde. In all of the photographs Gunārs Binde is seen himself. These works give a view into different artistic visions of the photographers and let us evaluate Gunārs Binde as a photo model – attractive, picturesome, with a great sense of humor.” The exhibited photo collection is a property of Gunārs Binde. Between the authors are such photographers as Michel Auer (Switzerland), Romualdas Pozerskis (Lithuania), Maxim Marmur (Russia), Wilhelm Mikhailovsky (Latvia), Valdis Brauns (Latvia), Gunārs Kopštāls (Latvia).
Gunārs Binde (born in December 27, 1933) started to learn photography by himself when he was 24 years old. After two years of practice he had his first solo exhibition in Alūksne Distric Museum. During his working life the artist has taken part in more than hundred solo and group exhibitions. In 1967 Gunārs Binde was awarded with his first gold medal in 30th International Salon of Art Photography in Buenos Aires (Argentina) for the portrait of theater director Eduards Smiļģis. In 2009 he was awarded with Order of the Three Stars. Gunārs Binde became one of the first Latvian photographers who were awarded with title “Artist” from International Federation of Photography (AFIAP). Photographs of Gunārs Binde have been included in private collections in Latvia, USA, Argentina, Lithuania, Estonia, Russia, Germany, France, Netherlands, Poland, Austria. He has made films “Hello Moscow” (“Hallo, Maskava”, 1966) “Arms” (“Rokas”, 1967), “Fireworks” (“Salūts”, 1975). Sarmīte Sīle describes Binde’s photography by saying that “the main research object for photographer in his art is body of woman, relationship between woman and man, human psychology. In these works a lyrical delight as well as rational view and intentional plays with form can be seen. It is an individual story about love, hate, understanding and sympathy”.
