Portrait of painter Vera Bondare

I noticed this beautiful woman at a business meeting. After the meeting, I learned she was latvian artist Vera Bondare.When I met Vera later, she was very open with me and was telling me so many interesting things about herself and her work.I asked Vera to meet with me again. And that’s how we started making photography together. I wouldn’t call it a project as it was more like friends meeting to simply spend time together. I would watch Vera, the way she works, the way she performs in front of the people, the way she relaxes. Vera’s personality is so diverse.
