About Maryanne Ventrice

Maryanne Ventrice is a photographer based in New York City with an eye for the personal in public performance and the history in the single moment. She believes the camera does not so much frame the individual as fashion an open dialogue, resulting in work that is first and foremost a collaborative effort. Her work has been published in The New York Times, Penthouse, Time Out New York Kids, Random House, Sonic, KEXP.org, Gothamist, The Apiary, Prefix, Impose, Brooklyn Vegan, The Music Slut, The Wild Honey Pie, on other music websites as well as on performers and author’s websites.

She has been the official photographer of the KiDROCKERS series in New York City since 2007. KiDROCKERS produces concerts that feature some of the most engaging and vital artists in indie music and comedy. These all ages shows are designed to bring families together to enjoy new music. Artists perform original (not specifically made for children) songs in a manner that is both authentic and kid-friendly.
