At age of 55, Marian Brickner realized she had to do something to stop people from killing each other and anything that looks different. She set out to show the world through photography that, even though we all look different, we are living beings and should be respectful to each other. This goes for humans and all living things, big or small.
Marian creates visual stories by capturing the lives and behaviors of insects and animals. Her intention for these photographs and stories are to help people form a better relationship with nature so there will be less killing and more loving. It is no coincidence that she has fallen in love with the make love not war great ape; the bonobo.
Almost three decades after beginning her quest, Marian has published over three dozen photographic and coloring books. Her photographs have graced the covers of internationally distributed textbooks and displayed across the French countryside on billboards and have appeared in children’s publications such as National Geographic Kids and Ranger Rick. Her visual stories are making many people smile. The world is a happier and better place with her stories.
