FK – Georgs Avetisjans
Georgs Avetisjans (1985) is a Latvian photographer, who addresses his roots in his projects so rich in textual and visual details – either the seaside village Kaltene, where he comes from, or Armenia, to which his father’s family is related. This year he published his photo book Homeland, which can be seen in the form of exhibition at the Latvian Museum of Photography up until 13 January 2019.
Georgs Avetisjans has graduated from the University of Brighton (UK) in 2016 with a Master’s degree in photography. For seven years he has lived in the USA and the UK. He has participated in various international exhibitions in Latvia, Italy, China, the Netherlands, and elsewhere. He has founded his publishing house Milda Books aimed at the photography books and apart from his own book is also planning to publish the works of other authors, too.
