Interviews with elders who has experienced war and all the political regimes. Their memories, experience and stories. Joining generations – younger people interviewing elders, photographers making portraits. As a result – exhibition in Latvia and hopefully at partners country.
This is an art and research project which unite generations, encourage to have deep conversation by asking questions to unreasonably forgotten source of wisdom in this digital era: people who have lived, experienced and understood. This is a call for leisurely conversation during which the portrait in four dimensions is created – photography, interview, handwriting sample and voice record. Idea is to create a wide collection of portraits from all over the world involving portraiture photographers and supportive, enthusiastic people.
