Peter Marlow

Although gifted in the language of photojournalism, Peter Marlow (b. 1952) is not a photojournalist. Though he was once one of the most successful young British news photographers, he found that he lacked the necessary appetite for the job. he disliked what he perceived to be a competition between photographers hunting fame. Since, his aesthetic has shifted and the color of incidental things became central to his pictures. He returned to Britain to examine his own experience and discovered a new visual poetry that enabled him to understand his homeland. Among his books, include: Concorde: The Last Summer (2006).
