Photographer Ilze Vanaga is from Latvia. I love her ways of bringing us back to childhood, nostalgic moments, stolen little treasures. The slightly burnt colours, the simplicity of the backgrounds reminiscent of the communist era, life in Latvia as seen by her young niece. These photos are full of emotions and simple pleasures.
Thank you Ilze for putting Latvia on the map. Can’t wait to have you as a guest editor on your home country!
