Agnieszka Sosnowska (b. Warsaw, Poland), received a B.F.A. in photography from the Massachusetts College of Art in 1995 and a M.F.A. in studio teaching from Boston University in 1999.
Her ongoing series of self-portraits reflect surreal memories of her rural lifestyle and upbringing and hint back to her childhood.
In 1996, Sosnowska returned to Poland to complete a Fulbright Fellowship where she documented the Tatra highlanders. In 2005, she completed a American-Scandinavian Fellowship in Iceland documenting the local farming culture.

"Many years ago I learned that a photograph can tell a story without answering questions. It’s the question that motivate my stories. In a way I’m inviting the viewer to complete my sentences. With a view camera I compose the edges of an image beneath the dark cloth and search for secrets. Private feelings made public by a person’s body language or the history of a place." - Agnieszka Sosnowska
