The opening of the photo exhibition in the shopping centre “SPICE”

PHOTO DONATION: Lauris Vīksne


For the second year in a row charity “Palidzesim.lv” and Latvia’s best photographers organize a photography exhibit. The photographs are images of children for whom society’s help currently is the only support and only possibility to lead a full life or at least a way to fulfil dreams that otherwise would be out of their reach - going to school, getting medical care or rehabilitation treatments, participation in summer camps, cultural events and educational programmes.

These photographs vividly depict the fate of these children, their true life story, their tears, sadness and also their joy when they receive help and support they so need.

Exhibit features work by Ilmārs Znotiņš, Gvido Kajons, Jānis Saliņš, Artūrs Romanovskis, Rolfs Vendiņš, Santa Spilberga, Andrejs Terentjevs, Juris Dreimanis, Valdis Jansons, Gatis Gierts and Ieva Andersone.

The opening of the photo exhibition in the shopping centre „SPICE” on 9th of December was a very sincere and nice event. More than 150 children came there from the different regions of Latvia to listen and watch the performances of „Putnu balle”, Maija Fogele, Vita Baļčunaite and Martiņš Ruskis and take part in the workshop organized by Maija Sējāne- Īle where everybody could make his own Christmas tree ball. With these balls was decorated The Christmas tree of the good wishes which in the next day travelled to our friends in the children care centre „Teika”.

The children could also enjoy the delicious big pretzel and pepper cakes from Mārtiņa Beķereja, the fruit from Augļu serviss and of course according to children- their biggest titbit- the chips from „Ādažu čipsi”.

The small children, happily screaming, had unforgettable minutes in the attraction park Lido and on the way home said that this has been their best day lately.

We are really glad that we managed to make this important day for us also as festivity for the children whom this exhibition is dedicated to.

Many thanks to all the photographers, artists, specially to actor Andris Bulis, the shopping centre „SPICE” for the possibility to make the exhibition already for the 2nd year in their hospitable „home”, Māris from Mdizains for the layout sheets, huge thanks to Aivars Purmals and fineArtPrint for the work on the photographs and printing, thanks to Mārtiņa Beķereja for the sweets, thanks to Ādažu čipsi and Augļu serviss for the delicious food, Greta for the table clothes, napkins, glasses, cups, Lido for the possibility to holiday in the attraction park, Statoil for the possibility for the children to come to the event, F64 for the photographers, Tv24 for the informative support!
