About 'Gallery Of Life'
Brexit, Trump, political-whatevers are happening around us but what doesn't change is that we still go on about our day today as we did yesterday. We are still a part of a largely multicultural society and each one of us is still an important part of the environment we live in. Regardless of our social standing, we're all individuals with feelings and aspirations, and we're all a small part in the bigger picture.
I have chosen to preserve these random moments of ordinary life from September 2017 through to February 2018. Two seasons, six months of frozen moments.
Life consists of brief but ongoing interactions with people around us, and in these brief moments we enter strangers' lives without giving it a single thought. Every single day we play a part in a real-time story that unfolds right in fornt of our eyes. I am here, in the front row, watching and documenting it closely.
How do I envision this project to continue?
My goal is to create a digital and print book that combines my thought entries after each session combined with the images. I wish for my project to become an exhibition, when I have finished my Autumn + Winter 2017/2018 session.
Hi, I'm Anete Lūsiņa
I am a Latvian ex-pat who's fallen in love with the diverse countries that combine to form the United Kingdom. I've lived here since 2010 and street and documentary photography is my chosen profession along with shooting reportage style weddings.
After having studied History and Criminology, I could not help but fall in love with documenting people, their behaviour, their quirks and everything that makes them a unique part of a bigger social picture.
Documentary, reportage, story telling... you can give it any of those tags and more. But it's a passion that consumes me every day. We all strive to leave our mark on the world in whatever way we can. My documentary work along with the books I create is the legacy I choose to leave.
Feel free to contact me if you'd like to find out more or perhaps you want to have a chat while I am documenting my project?
