Guest Speaker: Jesse Marlow- Street Photographer and Leica Ambassador
March 30 @ 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM
Jesse Marlow is a Melbourne-based and internationally recognised photographer. Over the last 25 years he has worked for a range of local and international editorial and commercial clients. His works are held in public and private collections across Australia and the world, including the National Gallery of Victoria and the Australian Parliament House Collection. In 2003, he published his first book of photographs: Centre Bounce: Football from Australia’s Heart, (Hardie Grant Books). In 2005 he published a book of street photographs titled Wounded, (Sling Shot Press). In 2006 he was selected to participate in the World Press Photo Joop Swart Masterclass in Amsterdam. In 2010 he was one of 45 street photographers from around the world profiled in the book Street Photography Now (Thames & Hudson). In 2011 he was the inaugural winner of the International Street Photography Prize. In 2012, Marlow won the MGA Bowness Prize, one of Australia’s leading Photography prizes.
In 2014, Marlow published his third monograph – ‘Don’t Just Tell Them, Show Them’. In 2021, Marlow published his fourth monograph ‘Second City’. With a highly developed eye for colour, pattern and subtle humour, Jesse is constantly searching for an ambiguity that lies just below the surface. Each image in his books is a perfect compositional gem full of delight. These images showcase Marlow’s ability to find wonder amidst the banality of everyday life.
His current reprinted book, ‘Don’t Just Tell Them, Show Them’ will be available for sale on the night at a discounted price for club members.
Jesse is a member of both the international street photographers’ collective, UP Photographers and Institute Artists and is a Leica Ambassador.
Jesse will talk about his street photography and aspects of his career.
