Marianna Rothen is a significant talent. She, at once, conveys emotion and vulnerability with a beautiful narrative and a sense of nostalgia. As a female studying females,  her eye and thought process are precisely what we are looking for.


I'm a photographer originally from Canada, now living in New York. I spent half of my life working and traveling as a model and during this time I also began taking photographs, learning along the way, with the help from other photographers and models. 
It was a great and exciting period, with a lot of freedom to experiment. 
Now I focus solely on photography and my short film projects.
Last year b.frank books published my first monograph: 
Snow and Rose & other tales and in New York I've started exhibiting with Kasher | Potamkin and Steven Kasher Gallery.

The past few years I've spent my summers in upstate New York, the western part of the Catskills, photographing women in micro narratives that are the basis of my working technique. 
I'm interested in struggle as a means for empowerment, the expectation of beauty, the influence of the psychological climate and how it's affected by existential anxieties.

I'm currently creating a new body of work and have been developing some ideas over these winter months that I will test out when the spring comes. I'm also finishing up a short film series at the moment which took the greater part of last year to create. The films are like vignettes, different chapters based on the same theme.
