About

Hi there. I'm Maranie — a photographer, journalist and storyteller here to share photos, stories and personal insights about life as an independent journalist. 

Amidst what feels like a constant deluge of images and information I provide something different -- honest, relatable ground-truth reporting delivered to your inbox. I also share about the hustle it takes to carve out a living as a freelance journalist; sometimes serious, sometimes humorous but always unflinching and sincere.
Compelled by curiosity, the desire to better understand and a fair bit of grit I believe in journalism and the importance of telling stories that help connect us to one another. From Iraqi Kurdistan to the US/Mexico border and from Vietnam to the Democratic Republic of Congo my work focuses on human displacement, social justice issues and the effects of conflict.

By becoming a Patron, you receive exclusive stories, blog posts, a signed print and will be able communicate directly with me. You'll also become part of a community of subscribers, a virtual family united in support of independent journalism.

Many don't know this, but most of my work is self-initiated, self-funded and often self-published (in spaces like this 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 story. Not a complaint, I'm proud of these last several years.

But, I'm also excited to share more and to build a community whose support will create space for even more focus.

Onward in gratitude,
Maranie
