Marie Tomanova

Born 1984 in Valtice, Czech Republic.
Lives and works in New York, United States.
Originally from South Moravia at the border between the Czech Republic and Austria, Marie Tomanova moved to the United States in 2011, after graduating with a masters degree in painting from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Brno University of Technology. There, she turned to photography and began to explore the themes of displacement, identity, and memory. Her series Young American, which gathers together portraits made in the milieu of young New York artists, was the subject of an exhibition at the Pragovka Gallery in 2019, and of a publication with Paradigm Publishing. Her second book, New York New York, will be published by Hatje Cantz in the summer of 2021.
