Self-portrait © Agnieska Sosnowska
Iceland based photographer Agnieska Sosnowska’s Self Portrait is simultaneously unsettling and intriguing. Invoking that moment in a dream when you know better than to open that door but you do not hesitate.
Sosnowksa received the Juror’s Selection award in the Center’s most recent Black and White exhibition.

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.
