Excellent portrayal of a photographer. Is she, or her friend who narrates the film, a member of RFF? They would probably be interesting contributors to some of the better discussions.

Oh, and what a wonderful world we now live in: we're watching a video on Aljazeera's web site. I do so like diversity.

"The important thing, is to work." This is a very succinct description, of how to find joy from a creative process, and have a compelling purpose in life.

I found Inta's work in a photography book featuring the work of artists from Eastern bloc countries. I bought the book and have been trying to find her work for years! Thank you so much for posting!

dont think it was done to impress you, besides the programme is about much more than photography...guess you missed that.

Surely, it is a matter of taste... but as a person who spent most of my life in Soviet Lithuania (neighboring country of Latvia) I can assure you that her photography is quite extraordinary even for that period of history. Photographing ordinary people in their poor environment was not very popular. Exhibitions were dominated by "Soviet achievements" - factory workers, agriculture, party leaders. Even for that social class it is not a typical photography in a way that she shows great dignity of "little people". And then the way she communicates/connects with them...

Unless you care to explain the criteria that govern your "taste", your comment is just belligerent.

Yes.

Interesting to compare to Arbus and Maier.

Thanks for the link. It was broadcast on Swedish television several times, but I managed to miss it. Maud Nycander is a fine photographer in her own right, and she became a great documentary filmmaker in the past decade.
