In her series “Sit Silently”, Latvian photographer Katrina Kepule captures the solitary moments that she finds herself at rest. Kepule also visually explores her search for her own Latvian identity within a landscape that seems behind the times. Her images show a pensiveness that invites the viewer to take a moment of their own to silently explore each photograph. Kepule explains on her website, “The pictures portray small towns and the outskirts of Latvia, and capture the search for a slower time zone with more vivid and more open expressions, as well as the sense of home and specific creativity of daily routines beyond the downtown”.
