According to the U.S. census, the average American moves 11.7 times in a lifetime. Most stay within the same county, let alone country. Agnieska Sosnowska’s Iceland catalogs her relationship with a new country and culture, examining the transition from the strange to the familiar.

In her own words:

These images are a visual diary revealing a new path in my life. In 2005, I married an Icelander and immigrated to a farm in Eastern Iceland. The camera has served as my tool in exploring a surreal landscape and understanding a culture that has become my new home.
