about

Mara Magyarosi-Laytner is a Detroit based artist, educator, and alternative process enthusiast. A graduate of both the College for Creative Studies and the Savannah College of Art and Design, she has experience across photography, education, and arts administration, culminating in her MA in Arts Administration in 2016 and her MFA in Photography in 2022. Her work pairs experimental photography methods to explore identity through a symbolic and poetic lens. The artist and her work have been shown in many spaces across the United States and internationally, including the ScotiaBank CONTACT Photography Festival in Toronto, Canada, and exhibitions in Italy, France, and Hungary. Mara has been featured in multiple articles and periodicals, including Complex, The Hand Magazine, and Aeonian Magazine. In 2022, her work from The Untended Garden was a Photo Lucida Critical Mass Finalist. Mara proudly is the founder of the Silver Water Collective, an all women artist collective celebrating the work of ten fine art photographers across North America.

Mara is also an award winning educator, combining her love of photography and her passion for connecting with people of all ages. Whether teaching photography to high school students in her classroom studio as the Media Productions Instructor at William D. Ford Career Technical Center or coaching fellow educators through the Design Thinking Process with the Henry Ford Learning Institute, her focus is on pushing forward culturally responsive education through art and design. Her educational accolades include being a semifinalist in the 2018 MAPSA Charter School Teacher of the Year awards and the 2019 Inspiring Educator Award through the Southeastern Michigan Region Scholastic Art Awards.
