The photographs show Riga as seen by local residents, presenting the viewers not the stereotypical postcards but images of the city’s suburbs, Riga residents and their routine lives. The works, mostly street photography, are the result of significant civic collaboration – visual testimonies to the present time, created by professionals and amateurs alike. Participating in the exhibition are Zelma Brezinska, Sergejs Babikovs, Aivars Slišāns, Andrejs Strokins, Viesturs Pinka and others.
