Marta Iwanek

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.
