Lecture by Artist J.H. Engström (Sweden)


The popular Swedish photographer J.H. Engström (1969) visits Riga to give a public talk.  Although the photographer was born in Sweden, he moved to Paris in his early teens together with his parents, which had a great impact on his creative development. Engström’s photographs form an autobiographic story, a documentary diary. The persons depicted in his photographs are in a natural state, with no shortcomings concealed – as are the photographs themselves. The lecture is organised in collaboration with the Boris and Ināra Teterev Foundation.
