María Martínez-Cañas is celebrated as one of the most important and influential Cuban born American artists of today. By choosing not to use any of the traditional techniques in photography, Martínez-Cañas has remained dedicated to experimental methods throughout her career. Formally compared to the Dadaists, she has truly made the medium her own with her unique processes and exploratory advances within the foundations of the art.
Her career began in 1982 and has since been shown countless times across the nation. She has received many awards and commissions and continuously proves to be a primary contender in the contemporary art world.
