Marianne MarpLondon is photographer, art director and artist. She is a polymath by nature, driven by research led commissioned or self-initiated projects. Her work focuses on portraiture, the space between fact and fiction and social commentary. Her lens seeks to explore the paradoxes of life to get a glimpse of the essence of the human condition.
In 2011, she was asked to shoot a portrait, which began her career as photographer (later also as an artist), after having worked with design, music and fashion for years.
Her work has been exhibited and published internationally, including Tate Modern and TedxEastEnd in London, Arte Institute, Foundation for Contemporary Art and Gallery See Exhibition Space in New York, The Guardian, The New York Times Style Magazine - T Qatar, Lensculture and Snapped Photography Magazine.
In 2017, Marianne Marplondon had her first solo show in Dallas (US) at tAd Gallery with the series: She Loves You, Yeah Yeah Yeah.
She holds a first class BA(Hons) in Contemporary Media Studies from University of Westminster in London.
Divides her time between London and Copenhagen.
