The Latio team respect art and especially treasure photography.
For several years within our photo projects we support and help to create photographs it has become a favourite tradition for us, our clients, partners and artists: Latio black-and-white photography calendar and Latvia Photography Award of the Year.
It is twelve years since Latio started developing and issuing exclusive calendars consisting of black-and-white photographs, each calendar being published in a limited edition - 1000 copies.
Each year there are different formatting and means of expression, but the core value has never changed – high quality black-and-white photography!
Calendars are worth being collected over the years and have become to be a permanent value in history of Latvian photography. Included are works of authors from several generations, some of them dedicated to well-known masters of photography – Andrejs Grants, Gvido Kajons, Mārcis Bendiks, Gunārs Binde, Vilhelms Mihailovskis, Valdis Brauns, Pēteris Jaunzems.

„Latio” black-and-white photography calendar in 2012 - „Gunars Binde. Photography collection”
The year 2012 is an anniversary year for me - it marks 50 years, since I discovered myself as a photographer starting with the photograph “Psychological Portrait” taken in 1962. I am delighted that„Latio issues black-and-white photography calendars. Black-and-white photography is classic, it is the most complete and developed form, it is beautiful and eloquent/”.
Latvia Photography Award of the Year
To celebrate the Latvian photographer performance and increase awareness about the significance of photography in contemporary art Latio has given our contribution in organizing "Latvia Photography Award of the Year” events in 2006 and 2007.
It was a pleasure to discover and present the photographers’ works and this beautiful genre of art.
