Sean Marcy

Freelance writer and photographer

Sean Marcy is a writer and photographer originally from Connecticut. He has a bachelor’s degree in journalism/photojournalism from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University. Soon after starting his first job in Northern Arizona at Larson Newspapers, publishers of the Sedona Red Rock News and Cottonwood Journal Extra, he was accepted into Barnstorm: The Eddie Adams Workshop.

While working intimately with Native American tribes on the Yavapai-Apache Reservation, Marcy was recruited by the Peace Corps and sent to serve in Mongolia, where he spent three years teaching herders children, and an additional three documenting Mongolian countryside life, especially Buddhism. This work became a book called Tankha in 2018. He was the founder of the Snow Leopard School in Tsetserleg, Mongolia, and in 2002 he was the first person to cross Mongolia by motorcycle.

In addition to human interest photography, he has worked for several automotive publications including Motor Magazine (Australia) and Road & Track. After many decades on the road, Marcy lives in North Granby, Connecticut, where he and his wife Sara have three children and an Irish Wolfhound.
