Exhibition “Sweden from a Bird’s Eye View”


Rīdzenes street November 22 – December 5, 2021, by Swedish photographer Dmitrij Karpenko.

In the exhibition Sweden from a Bird’s Eye View, Swedish-Russian photographer Dmitrij Karpenko presents spectacular photographs of Stockholm and the area around Lake Mälaren. The pictures are taken by Karpenko from on-board his own Cessna aircraft.

The nature is close to heart and close in distance to Swedes. National parks and nature reserves cover more than a tenth of Sweden’s land area, and more than 80 per cent of Swedes live within 5 kilometres of a national park, nature reserve or other nature conservation site. In 1995, Sweden became home to the world’s first national park situated in a city – the Royal National City Park in Stockholm.

Pianist Toms Juhnevičs will present the program with Swedish and Latvian music between 17.00 and 18.30.
