Edited by Alexander Scholz,
with a text by Prof. John Wood

In his introduction to Polaroids, photography critic and historian John Wood writes: ''Come into these rooms with me, into Agafia's mysterious and beautifully crafted days — days like no others you have ever witnessed. Look all around ... Eden was dead ground, a stagnant garden as poisonous as Rappaccini's garden in Hawthorne's well-known short story ... For life to be vibrant it has to have some pain, some distress, some angst; otherwise how would we know we were really alive? Agascha's radiant rooms may all be ashimmer, but the shimmer may at times have an unnerving cast. Not evil, but certainly the knowledge of it... ."

Agafia Polynchuk was born in 1988 in Leningrad. Her self-portraits visualize personal feeling and memory.
