10 years of ISSP

In April 2016 Association ISSP is celebrating its 10th birthday with a new publication, instagram takeovers and more! 

Since 2006, when ISSP was founded to organise the first International Summer School of Photography in Ludza, it has developed into a professional organisation with wide-ranging activity in the field of photography - alongside the annual summer school, there is now ISSP School in Riga, the ISSP International Masterclass, the Self Publish Riga event series, various exhibitions, residencies and publications, all aiming to encourage the international exchange of ideas and promote the understanding of contemporary photography in Latvia and beyond. 

Our anniversary publication - the ISSP 10 postcard set - showcases the best new Latvian photography by 10 emerging artists, the friends and contemporaries of ISSP. 

As part of our birthday celebrations, we asked 10+1 great photographers from around the world - our friends, students and tutors - to take over ISSP's instagram for a week with a view of their everyday life and artistic practice. Follow at: www.instagram.com/issp_latvia/

Thanks for being part of the ISSP story so far and here's to the future!
