I grew up in Riga, Latvia. I started my photographic career as a fashion photographer, but in the past several years I have turned my sights towards more personal projects. In 2008, I received a B.A. in Photography from the Arts Institute at Bournemouth, England, and currently I’m finishing my studies in Helsinki with a Master’s in Photography at Aalto University of Art and Design (TAIK). My photographs have been exhibited in Latvia, Lithuania, the UK, France, China, and Belgium. I’m also a recipient of the following awards: Nikon Discovery Awards (2008), c/o Berlin Talents (2013), and Burn Magazine Grant (2013).
