Our little Railija is going to Minneapolis
I am thrilled to share this news with you. ’Railija and Runka’, my photograph from the City on the Sea series, was recently selected to be part of a juried photography show at the Minneapolis Photography Center in Minnesota.
The show will be comprised of prints selected by Christina Chang, Assistant Curator at the Weisman Art Center in Minneapolis, from a pool of work submitted to the International Call for Entry, “Woman As Photographer. Picturing Life As A Woman”. The exhibition will run from March 4th through April 17th at the Minneapolis Photography Center.
Railija and Runka is a double portrait of my 3 year-old niece (she was 2 when I took the picture) with my brother’s cat Runka (or Čumins, as my brother’s family calls him). I took it at the end of an unusually sunny summer of 2009, during my last visit to Latvia.
