FLY. Endangered birds and human immigration in Latvia

Fly is an approach of immigration movements. In that crucial moments that we are living about country divisions, the emergence of new borders, walls, wars, country threads and at the very end a certainly bitter discontent about immigrants, animals are suffering in the same way, as a cost of the climate change.

When someone takes the hard decision of immigration there is a little hope that things will change. I would like to offer to both a good travel companion. Humans and birds.

The visual work is mainly portraits of people that I have meet in Latvia and have moved from foreign countries and local birds in an endangered situation.
