For five years, I went round approximately 20 studios and three schools in Estonia and I have visited 11 countries to compare with Estonians. They have education, an environment to get closed to the culture and because of small population they keep blacksmith culture. I am glad to see the social change by the technical evolution to have a good living?environment. However, if we lose splendid things based on tradition, it is dreary. I keep observing this culture and expressing it with photographs.
