Marie Eriel Hobro is a documentary photographer and filmmaker who was born in Silver Spring, Maryland and raised between Mililani and Wahiawa, Hawai'i. Her work primarily focuses on dismantling the stereotypical narratives associated with Hawaiʻi. She is also passionate about telling eccentric, colorful stories that celebrate individuality and stories about identity, people of color, strong women, and drag queen culture.
She received her Bachelor of Science in Visual Journalism from Brooks Institute and attended the Eddie Adams XXIX Workshop as a student in the Fall of 2016. She is also a member of Women Photograph, Diversify Photo, and Authority Collective and runs Wolf & Woman Collective, a visual storytelling company dedicated to changing the perception of Hawaiʻi.
When sheʻs not shooting, she can be found making weird earrings out of old toys like sheʻs Sid in Toy Story. She is available for assignment anywhere.
