Agnes Thor is Swedish, born in 1986, lives and works in NYC. “I see these landscapes as portraits. What you see is not only grass, trees, fields. The images are a reflection of me, and also allow the viewer to see themselves. Aurora Borealis is a personal story, portraying both familiar and foreign surroundings and like memories the photographs are neither fictional nor real, but are nevertheless true.”
