Since the end of World War II and up to the 1990s, Latvia has been a part of the Soviet Union. The political ideologies, propaganda in the media, collective traumas, day-to-day rituals and fear of a possible World War III which permeated the public consciousness in those days are strangely resonant with the current geopolitical tendencies. These photos are rooted in the memories of the state of war between NATO and the Soviet Union.
