Eric Marrian

Born in 1959 - France


Born in 1959, Eric Marrian starts his professional life as an architect.

At the beginning of the new millennium he decided to return to his old love, photography, in which he wanted to make a career when still an architecture student.

In 2003 he began work on a series about Saint Malo to which he still adds pictures. Later on he switched to studio work, producing medium and large-format prints. After that things moved quickly: he won the BIEVRES competition, was published repeatedly in photography magazines and had an exhibition of his own at the Salon des Artistes Français, at the invitation of the organizers.

At the end of 2005 he started work on the Carré Blanc series. The first pictures from this series won him the main prize at the European Festival of Nude Photography in Arles in 2006. His series about Saint Malo also won an award, the Leica Procirep.

The exhibition which followed at Galerie Verdeau was extremely successful. He was spotted by a Russian gallery owner (Gallery 2.36) who went on to show his work in 2008 and 2009. Furthermore, Olga Sviblova invited him to the Moscow Biennale where he was allocated a 400-m2 space.

Since then his ‘Carré Blanc’ series has often been shown, both in his home country France and elsewhere (Galerie Verdeau Rive Gauche, Fondation ERA in Moscow, the Mostra di Venezia-Mestre, Les 3 jours de Drouot, Maison Européenne de la Photographie, etc.).

A number of advertisers know and follow Marrian’s work (Nikon, Kodak, Leica, DUPON). He began to take an idiosyncratic look at the fashion world and his first editorials appeared in 2010.

Eric Marrian’s work is now presented in Galleries in France, Belgium and Switzerland.
