Two Asterisks and a Baby… (Maris Zemgalietis on


…the two asterisks refers to the title that Maris Zemgalietis gives his lovely image – not very imaginative, but then I know photographers often don’t like over-defining a shot with too precise a title. Maris is a Latvian from Riga, and works for a local food-photography agency – the other theme on his galleries being tasteful, almost abstract nudes. There’s nothing like this, with its startling use of colour and the lovely contrast in skin tones : how can a guy produce this, and then go back to plates of food and murky nudes? Just a one-off, I guess…and it goes right back to 2010….
