I have called Iceland my home since 2005. I was born in Poland, grew up in Boston and now live on a farm in the East of Iceland. I have been taking self portraits, pictures of neighbors and friends since my arrival to gain a better sense of my new surroundings.
The lifestyle that I have chosen is isolated, rural, rough and often times incredibly surreal. Iceland is a country where natural disasters are commonplace. A culture that is steeped with myths of the supernatural and ancient sagas. By taking these pictures I'm not only trying to connect to my new found home but to face the challenges that come through trying understanding a whole new way of life.
