Photo exhibition «Latvians in Sweden: 1944–1990, Photographer Fricis Forstmanis»

Fricis Forstmanis (1906–2004), better known as the poet and translator of poetry Fricis Dziesma, left Latvia in November 1944 in a refugee boat to go to Sweden. During his life, Forstmanis has been not only a poet, journalist, librarian and bookbinder, but also a talented photographer who has used his camera to document both Latvian exile activities in Sweden and create expressive portraits of his contemporaries. The exhibition shows a small but unique part of Fricis Forstmanis cultural-historical collection.
