Garāža is the Latvian word for garage. It is also the title of a new photography series, showing old garage doors in the run-down suburbs of Riga, Latvia. Some are made of metal, others of wood. Some of them seem beautiful, others vibrant or even dilapidated. Apart from these superficialities, all doors share the same shape and size. Nevertheless, each of them is unique and hides a different story we will never know.
