This exhibition was produced as part of Artproof Grant Estonia.
“I grew up in small industrial town of Sillamäe in Soviet Estonia. I have very few pictures of my childhood, mostly staged, taken during the moments I don’t remember nor care about. So I created my own very personal version of childhood pictures with my kids, from bits and pieces I remember and find important. These are the moments that brought butterflies to my stomach or shivers on my back. All the struggles, urges, dreams and desires. Moments that have defined much of my later life and who I am now. “
Karel Kravik is a self-taught independent photographer, born on 1980.
