Anne-Marie Arpin (b. 1980) is a self-taught photographer whose work focuses mainly on portraiture, with a social documentary twist . Despite being quiet and reserved, she is a curious, kind-hearted and empathic person. These traits of character enables her to gain the trust that is needed to build relationships with her subjects. 

Her projects are about the relationship between humans and natural environments and/or animals. She is interested in shedding light on the ordinary and the unnoticed. Through storytelling, her purpose is to understand how humans go through life, and what draws them together, creating communities.
