Freeport of the Riga Authority
Kalpaka Boulevard 12
On September 2015, the Freeport of Riga organized an international photo project “Osta. Cilvēks. Vēsture.” (“Port. Man. History.”) in honour of the 815th anniversary of the Port of Riga. The goal of the project was to gather the historical photographs of the Port of Riga and create an archive of documentary photographs that would reflect the daily life in the port, the work rhythm, the historical development and achievements. As a result of the project, an exhibition was created that can now be viewed as part of the “Staro Rīga 2015” festival under different circumstances and in a different environment – on the façade of the unique building of the Freeport of Riga that is located in one of the most beautiful parks in Riga – Kronvalds Park.
