    208 pages feature 99 photographs of police officers, folk girls, protesters and collective rituals, which together form a critical, ironic and sentimental picture of Latvian society. The photos were taken from 2008 to 2015, when Latvia recovered from the previous economic crisis and the ideological goal of that time – the introduction of the euro – promised to solve all its problems. Today there's another crisis and another solution, but has society changed?

    The book is also available in Jānis Roze and Globuss bookshops, Latvian Museum of Photography in Riga, ISSP and bar/bookshop Bolderāja.
