Orbita – 2019

Second print run of 400

The book “Glass Strenči” contains unique documentation of a bygone era — well preserved glass photoplates that capture the everyday and festivities of the residents of Strenči in the interwar period. There are nearly 13 thousand glass negatives from the Strenči photography workshop from over 40 years in the interwar period and the Soviet years.

The book is important in the international context as well — it is perhaps the best known visual documentation of the European interwar period.The images used in the book were collected from the Strenči photography workshop archives, which are preserved in the Latvian Museum of Photography.
