The City of My Youth

Māra Brašmane

Māra Brašmane’s photo series “The City of My Youth” shows Riga of the 1960s-1970s which was the time when the alternative culture came out in the streets.

The format of the publication resembles that of a private photo album of the 1960s. The included essay is a declaration of love to Riga, depicting with deep sincerity the democratic albeit starting to vanish from the memory image of the city. An interview with photographer Māra Brašmane helps to reveal the author’s special attitude to the city of her youth, captured in her photographs
