Project description:

The main aim of the project „Islands of Riga” („Rīgas salas”) is to explore views of islands in Riga, this particularly marginal and slightly vanishing part of the capital city. The project that writer Gundega Repše and photographer Kaspars Goba did together, shows much wider understanding of Riga identity in more unusual way, it offers new information, new facts and literary values. The project events will offer an insight into the panorama of Riga islands, representing both islands that sill exist as well as those that have already dissapeared.
