Arnis Balcus “Victory Park” Photobook Launch
16 March, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Victory Park focuses on a particular location in the Latvian capital of Riga, a park with a complex history overlaid with the policies of former regimes and cumbersome social realities. This photographic work is more than just documentation or research material — the spontaneity of the shots and the juxtaposition of the images in the book creates an impression of an artistic experiment carried out in-situ.
Photographer Arnis Balcus (*1978) is based in Riga, Latvia. He has BA in Communication Studies from University of Latvia and MA in Photographic Studies from University of Westminster. In most of his photographic work he examines Latvian identity, historical taboos and social-political agendas. Balcus is also the editor-in-chief of FK Magazine and programme director of Riga Photomonth.
