Project description:

During the “Notes of Beauty” project, photographer Aija Bley had a chance to travel to Japan, and the exhibition presents her latest works created during her visit there, in which the author follows relations between various couples, trying to discover what love is. What does love look like? The exhibition shifts the stereotypical perceptions by looking for the answer not in a relationship between two persons, but in the photographer’s ability to justify the presence of love in every shot she makes. Besides photographs, the exhibition presents the artist’s commentaries and a video installation.
