About the Ebook
This Portfolio features "Heavenly Dream" and "Heavenly Light" editions. In 2006 Vineta began to work on her own collection of abstract photography, exploring a newly created mini universe from her own rules and logic. She is an explorer of an undiscovered world, photographing hundreds of images, documenting along the way. Vineta attempts to capture all the beauty she sees, so as not to forget, to share with others what she has found. But a "Created Universe" cannot be seen twice. Images are the only documents and proof that this world ever existed. In this sense, each series is based on a separate unique universe, usually in an image series of twelve. "Mini Universes" are mysterious places of light, grace and spirituality. The colors and shapes may vary from one to the next, but the same spirit exists throughout them all-the spirit of light that overtakes darkness. She attempts to create an atmosphere of hope and beauty and her ability to capture the moment while creating it at the same time is that which makes her work unique.
