Tina Remiz
Photographer

I am a documentary storyteller and visual artist of Latvian origin, currently based in the UK’s capital.Recent graduate from BA Photographic Arts at the University of Westminster, I work as a freelance photographer, specializing in reportage and portraiture.

Both my visual and written work has appeared in numerous national and international publications and has been exhibited in the UK and abroad.

A lot of my personal work is concerned with the issues of migration and cultural identity, as I reflect on my personal experience of growing up in the post-Soviet Latvia and immigrating to the West in late teens. What makes people to identify themselves as representatives of a particular culture, what are the manifestations of the national identity and how do they change when the person moves to live in another country are the questions that inspire many of my projects.

  • Betty Bee: Nacquero A Napoli Improvvisandosi
    Apr 7 – Jun 7, 2024
    zaza'
    Milan, Italy
    Strictly brunettes. Indeed brunette one, brunette the other. Capricious by poetics the first by birth, smooth as a straight line the second. The birthplaces of both are Parthenopean. As for one rooted on the cliffs of Posillipo where she also spent the resilient months of the recent Pandemic, while the other belongs to that blood material that protrudes into the vessel of the great swarming artery of Via Foria and its labyrinthine environs, where she still resides.

    Stasys Museum
    Panevėžys, Lithuania
    On this day… Stasys arrives back at his home village, Lepšiai… It all happens in May 2024… That’s when the Stasys Museum opens up to the public, a museum titled after him. This was never predicted – the future from there, a little village, in the house within a disorderly wooden structure, run down with dripping roofs, filled with bellowing, roaring farm animals… No fairy tales could be heard there… But just one hour’s walk away from Lepšiai, the white rectangular building stands proudly in the city centre (more…)

  • Emily Ferguson: It Girl.
    Jun 1 – Jul 13, 2024
    Nicodim Gallery
    Los Angeles, USA
    What’s an It Girl? An image of an seraphic figure, glowing almost too bright to be looked at until the flashbulbs recharge and the cameras become visible. Glamoured, the viewer is still seeing spots and rubbing their eyes as the figure stalks out of view, no-one quite sure if she’s real or not, an apparition disappeared. An apparition, by its very nature is uncertain, the intention defined by the person who sees it – The angel becomes a monster if enough people describe it so. (more…)
