Project description:

2012 through 2014, residents of Ķengarags, Bolderāja, Jugla and other neighbourhoods of Riga participate in various creative workshops to create their photographic self-portraits with the help of foreign and Latvian artists. Any Rigan is welcome to submit his or her self-portrait that together will eventually create a joint portrait of the capital city. “Riga Self | Portraits” is part of the international community art project “Contemporary Self Portraits”, which in Latvia is run by the ISSP Association.
