In 2011 I went to Denmark to study at the Ryslinge Hojskole. I also met Vineta, we´ve been to Berlin and did a play in the Turkish Theater, I got robbed and saw a baby seal on the northern most point of Denmark. I also started photographing on film.

After coming back from Denmark I went to see Vineta in Riga in March of 2012 without any real plans. Before that I applied for photography studies at the University of Ostrava and then I just took all money my father gave me from some kind of savings he set up when I was born and just took a bus to Latvia. After three or four very nice weeks (or was it longer?) of living with Matiss in his flat and later with Vineta in her room I was still with no job and almost no money. Then an email came saying I was invited to take part in the entrance exams for the photography studies. So I left Latvia went back to Czech Republic and did the entrance exams. I decided I had to leave the house again. One morning I found an ad from a hostel in Barcelona. They were looking for new staff.

Thanks to my previous experience from Amsterdam, Porto, Lisbon and Prague I knew that I won´t be able to make a lot of money but since I always wanted to visit Barcelona I applied. Half an hour later I got a reply asking me to call back on Skype. So I did that and after about fifteen minutes I got the job. I bought a ticket to Barcelona for three days later and then I got up and went to pee. Three days later still without any news from the university I left for Barcelona. There many things happened and I will write about them some more some day. Five months later I was back in Czech Republic. The first reason of my return was that my sister was getting married in september (on my birthday) and the second reason was that I actually got accepted to study photography at the Ostravien university which is exactly what I wanted to do, although leaving Barcelona was not easy.

In 2013 I found an internship with Kameraphoto collective from Portugal and so I moved to Lisbon for six months. I have a lot of photos from this period and also many great memories. This is the first album from my stay and there will be more. While in Lisbon we also went to a Moon Duo concert with Lucia. 

A year and something later this was the first photograph I sold at the YoungRealArt gallery.
