I am a documentary storyteller and visual artist of Latvian origin, currently based in the UK. Trained as a photographer and journalist, I work across a wide range of creative platforms, choosing the most effective combination of media to tell a story. A lot of my personal work is concerned with the issues of migration and cultural identity, as I reflect on the personal experience of growing up in the post-Soviet Latvia and immigrating to the West in my late teens. Krievi – the Latvian name for Russians – is a documentary project about the Russian community of Latvia.
