Born in Montreal, Marianne McEwen completed her studies in photography at Dawson College in 2001 where her graduating portfolios were awarded the prize for artistic self-expression. Her strengths are in still life and food photography as well as portraiture.
She has recently published Culinary Art, a book that is both a cookbook and an art book. This is a cookbook in which the images portray not the recipes themselves, but rather still lives and abstractions made with simple ingredients. The result is a book in which the images and recipes stand on their own, but also play off one another beautifully when put together, pushing the boundaries of food photography into the sphere of art.
She currently lives in Magog, Québec with her husband and 2 children where she pursues various photography projects.
