Her photographs have been shown in Paris at Galerie Agathe Gaillard in the 1980s. Her photo series, personal visions on the work and personality of other artists, are published in catalogues, books and regularly the French art magazine Frog. She has been working as a photographer with Maison Martin Margiela since 1990. Marina Faust defines for herself the space of publication (magazines, newspapers, books) as a space of perception and therefore an artistic space.[vague] Her photos, texts and projects have been published in numerous magazines such as Purple Fashion, Purple Journal, A Magazine, Numéro Magazine, Japan, AD Germany and AD US.
In 1995 Faust expanded the field of photography onto other media. Her work today includes photography, collages, objects and videos. She was an invited artist at the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris, in 2000-2001. Her group of traveling chairs, first shown at Song Song, Vienna in 2007, is part of the collection of the MAK, Museum für Angewandte Kunst, Vienna and is installed at the CAT Contemporary Art Tower, Vienna.
