Dina Shirin is a photographer from Latvia based in New York City. Her fascination with photography began in childhood, developing photographs in her father's darkroom in their hometown of Riga. She spends her time working on photo projects—focusing primarily on portraiture, street photography, landscapes, still lifes, and surrealist compositions inspired by the old masters of art and classical photography.
The process of making an image is a layered, emotional expression capturing a moment in time. In my work, I explore unpredictable points of view, dreamlike layering of images and organic textures.
Dina is a member of the New York photography collective, Camera of The Month Club and stays active within the photo community.
