About Maranie

Thanks for stopping by! I'm Maranie — a photographer, videographer and writer here to share images, stories and personal insights about life as an independent journalist. 

Amidst what feels like a constant deluge of images and information I strive to provide something different—honest and relatable ground-truth reporting. I also occasionally share about the hustle it takes to carve out a living as an independent journalist; sometimes serious, sometimes humorous, always unflinching and sincere.

From Iraqi Kurdistan to the US/Mexico border and from Vietnam to the Democratic Republic of Congo my work focuses on social unrest, human displacement, social justice issues and the effects of conflict. 

Most of my work is self-initiated, self-funded and often self-published (on social media and in spaces like a monthly newsletter). I'm known to hustle odd jobs for plane tickets and to sleep on floors in order to cut expenses. Every dollar is one potentially used to support the next adventure and story.

By becoming a Patron you are immediately part of a community of subscribers, a virtual family united in support of independent journalism, one whose support will create space for even more focus.

With gratitude,
Maranie
