ABOUT

Anete Atvare (b. 1992) is a photographer and visual artist originally from Riga, Latvia. Having travelled in Europe, the US, Canada, Russia and Africa, Anete finds it exotic going back to her hometown that holds a bit of that post-Soviet feel. By experiencing these diverse cultures she has an appreciation for the discarded and out of place. Anete’s photographic projects are largely influenced by the inspirations new experiences offer and aesthetically mirror her shifting environment.

The work I do generally is documentary. However when I am collaborating, projects are quite diverse. I enjoy collaborating and am looking forward to work with other passionate, inspiring creatives. Some of my collaboration projects include working with cafes, restaurants, dance group, swim team, photographing outdoor events (music and sports) as well as studio work. My personal projects are mainly linked to my travels (near & far) and culture explorations.
