- New York
Dina Shirin is a photographer and graphic designer originally from Latvia, currently based in New York City. Her fascination with photography began in childhood, developing photographs in her father's darkroom for his photo business in their hometown of Riga. She spends her time working on photo projects using digital and mobile cameras, experimenting with compositional perspectives, and focusing primarily on portraiture, street photography and fine art image making.
For me photography is a process that happens in the moment, a simple, spontaneous expression that is created without the weight of thought. In my work, I explore unpredictable points of view, dreamlike layering of images, and organic textures.
