"Tomorrow" is a project started from me, from my facing the future, from my lack of answers, from my being part of a stuck generation. I always find myself talking with my contemporaries about what is going to be, about the best decisions to take, about our worries becoming adult people.
I’m experiencing that right know and when I heard of the economic crisis in Latvia, maybe the worst in Europe, so sudden and so strong, I immediately thought about the youngsters and about what that change could have caused inside them. I found a real and evident story where my point of view of the matter could have been actual and where I could have felt deeply involved.
The future is just a concept, it doesn’t exist. Everything has still to happen. The future exists just in the perception we can have of it. And if this perception, these insights, get damaged or get changed, also the future itself will do the same.
And that’s why I meant to give prominence and importance to something which is often intangible like the feelings and the outlooks. They are the base where all our choices start from and on which we build ourselves as individual, as society and as country.
These pictures mean to tell the feelings and the sensations and the attitude of the new generation in Latvia. The most frequent attitude in the people I met is the waiting. They were immersed in this situation without being able to do anything and above all without being responsible for it at all. And it’s very hard to be aware of what is going on, because they’re just trying to be adults, you don’t know how it is, never mind how to face an international economic crisis.
My aim is to keep following this path and carry on my project about my generation in different places and reality.
"Tomorrow" means to be a project about moods.
