The book ‘Silver Girls. Retouched History’ of Photography has been published in conjunction with the exhibition of the same title in the Tartu Art Museum, Estonia (2020). The book brings together ten early women photographers from geographical region of Latvia and Estonia. However, rather than a historical overview, the book is a loving look at the life and work of the assembled authors and cherishes the role that lost and forgotten heritage plays in culture. In order to showcase this heritage, the book and the exhibition feature works by three contemporary artists. These rely on the lost and forgotten while proving that even though works of art can be physically destroyed, they still continue to influence our current culture.
