© Ivars Gravlejs, Shopping Poetry, 2012

In 2015, Latvian born artist Ivars Gravlejs released Early Works, a photographic scrapbook which documents his schooldays during 1990s. This body of work propelled his name in the photography and art world.

Now living and working in Prague, Ivars ongoing series Shopping Poetry is inspired by the facial expressions that shoppers make when looking at their grocery receipts.
