AboutThe award-winning international charity PhotoVoice continues its lecture series with this evening's talk by Peter Marlow.
Marlow is one of Britain's leading photojournalists, whose work has appeared in most of the world's major magazines. Marlow joined Magnum Photos in 1980, becoming a full member in 1986.
Despite travelling widely in his early career, Marlow's major projects have often been concerned with contemporary British life such as his 1993 project Liverpool - Looking out to Sea (Jonathan Cape), the culmination of a six-year project photographing the city, and a book regarded by many as the defining work on Britain under Mrs Thatcher. Marlow spends time with his subjects, alone, with no assistants, often using only one camera, allowing the pictures to evolve rather than directing his subjects. In recent years, he has worked more extensively in colour and concentrated on his exploration of the physical and personal landscape.
Marlow's current project is a survey of the naves of all 42 of England's cathedrals.
