One day in Latvia

Latvia today and 20 years ago

A unique photo-session ”One day in Latvia” was held in the territory of Latvia in 1987. This year, 20 years later, a similar session is about to take place. Latvian and foreigh photo-experts will participate in the session. And you can take part as well! All together we will create the today’s portrait of Latvia to compare it with the materials of the historical session that have never been published before. This review of the last 20 years’ history of Latvia will be available in the form of a special photo album, multivisual CD and photo exhibitions in Latvia and outside of it.
