Marta Iwanek
Photographer

I am a photojournalist currently based in Toronto, Canada.

I’m interested in exploring subjects that deal with how we care for one another in the communities we build – what we gain from this and what happens when it is lost. Born to parents who were immigrants to Canada, community has played a strong role in my life.

I am a graduate of the journalism program at Ryerson University and the photojournalism program at Loyalist College. My work has appeared in publications such as The Canadian Press, the Toronto Star, The Globe and Mail, Maclean’s and Maisonneuve.

My work has been honoured with awards from organizations that include the Canadian Journalism Foundation, the Magenta Foundation and the National Magazine Awards. This past fall I was a participant in the Eddie Adams Workshop in Jeffersonville, New York.

  • Emily Ferguson: It Girl.
    Jun 1 – Jul 13, 2024
    Nicodim Gallery
    Los Angeles, USA
    What’s an It Girl? An image of an seraphic figure, glowing almost too bright to be looked at until the flashbulbs recharge and the cameras become visible. Glamoured, the viewer is still seeing spots and rubbing their eyes as the figure stalks out of view, no-one quite sure if she’s real or not, an apparition disappeared. An apparition, by its very nature is uncertain, the intention defined by the person who sees it – The angel becomes a monster if enough people describe it so. (more…)
  • Marguerite Humeau: Orisons
    Jul 29, 2023 – Jun 30, 2025
    Black Cube
    Hooper, USA
    Marguerite Humeau’s Orisons is a subtle, 160-acre earthwork that transforms an unfarmable plot of land in Colorado’s San Luis Valley into a place of reverence, honoring its expansive history, existing ecosystem, and imaginable futures. The work consists of the land in its entirety, as well as a series of eighty-four kinetic and interactive sculptures that invoke the land’s histories and vast network of interrelations. (more…)
  • How Not to Be Seen
    May 10 – Sep 8, 2024
    Remai Modern
    Saskatoon, Canada
    We may not always be aware of it, but we live in an era of continuous scrutiny. Modern technology captures, distributes, and analyzes images and data at ever-increasing rates. We are all subjects of tracking, not only by cameras employed purportedly as a deterrent for crime but also by digital tools used by corporations and governments alike to monitor and evaluate our actions, needs, and desires.

  • Dustin Shum: BLOCKS
    Publication
    Inertia Books
    International
    Public housing has recently been portrayed as a carrier of good neighbourhood that is vanishing in our society and the public has romanticised its image. However, the public has neglected the many real problems faced by people living in these flats: low income, jobless, disability, family problems, new migrants, ageing population and so on. Meanwhile, meaningless renovations have been carried out in old public housing estates but no improvements have been made on facilities that that are really in need. (more…)
