Marianna Armata was raised in Poland when Brezhnev and Nixon were in power. She became an instant illiterate in both English and French the day she landed in Montréal at the age of twelve. Communication, by any method, became a critical skill she never abandoned. She has preferred the visual method since that life-turning moment.

Marianna graduated with honours from Concordia (and McGill) University and has just retired from her 37-year long career as a professional graphic designer to pursue her passion in photography.

She is an international award winning photographer whose work has been published in Canadian Geographic, Photo Life, Photo News, Popular Photography, DSLR Magazine, Communication Arts, World Wildlife Foundation, and Herzstuck. She was honoured by the Lakeshore Camera Club as their "Photographer of the Year” for several years. She enjoys macro and innovative conceptual photography and loves to challenge herself to captureand create something new and original every day. Read Less
