Arnis Balcus “Victory Park”, Published By Brave Books, Berlin

Book Launch

»Victory Park«

Arnis Balcus

Book Launch: Thursday, January 12, 2017, 19-22h (Facebook Event)
Admission free


We are pleased to invite you to the book launch of “Victory Park” and a conversation with its author Arnis Balcus and the book’s designer Tom Mrazauskas.

Arnis Balcus’s photobook “Victory Park” focuses on a particular location in the Latvian capital of Riga, a park with a complex history overlaid with the policies of former regimes and cumbersome social realities. This photographic work is more than just documentation or research material – the spontaneity of the shots and the juxtaposition of the images in the book creates an impression of an artistic experiment carried out in-situ.

Photographer Arnis Balcus (*1978) is based in Riga, Latvia. He has BA in Communication Studies from University of Latvia and MA in Photographic Studies from University of Westminster. In most of his photographic work he examines Latvian identity, historical taboos and social-political agendas.

Tom Mrazauskas (*1980) is a book designer based in Berlin. His works won several awards in international book design competitions and earned a special mention in Paris Photo / Aperture Foundation PhotoBook of the Year Award 2014. Recently he founded Brave Books, an independent publisher with a focus on photography and works that are best conveyed and represented in a book format.
