Marita Upeniece

I'm a Latvian/British photographer, based in London. I work across a range of genres, including portraiture, food & still life and landscapes. I grew up around photography, so for me it's an important part of expressing myself and new ideas, but also always returning to my roots. I grew up in Latvia, one of Europe's least densely populated countries, so my photography practice often explores the tension between urban and nature, regeneration and decay, and the need for space and solitude.

Before embarking on a career in photography, I worked in PR for ten years, so have a unique mix of experience in telling stories through words and images. I graduated with Distinction in photography (Graduate Diploma Photography) from London College of Communication, part of University of the Arts London., in 2020.
