Karolina Karlic is a Los Angeles-based photographer, born in Wroclaw, Poland.

In search of the American dream, her family fled communist Poland in 1986, and her father found work in the U.S. auto industry. Her series "The Dee," "Close to Home," "Dear Diary" and "ELEMENTARZ" have been exhibited nationally. Most recently, her film “This Part of the Legend of a Dream” was screened at the REDCAT, Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater in Los Angeles. In 2011 she was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship.
