My name is Katrina Kepule and I am a photographer based in Latvia. My chosen approach in photography relates to subjective documentary showing the ordinary in the form of a elegiac photo narratives. I am interested in the concept of periphery in its physical as well as mental aspect,  individual or subcultural rites creating a space within / aside from  society.

I received a B.A. in Audio and Visual Culture and Theory from the Latvian Academy of Culture, and also graduated from a two year informal education program at the International Summer School of Photography in 2014. I have participated in masterclass by Jan Grarup: Essence of photojournalism ( 2013) and Artist's Book making workshop by Nico Baumgarten (2014). I graduated from contemporary photography and personal projects Master studies as a recipient of the Roberto Villagraz scholarship at EFTI, Madrid (2016). I have worked as a photo reporter at Chancellery of the Latvian Parliament (Saeima) and am currently working on assignments for Helsingin Sanomat.
