A new exhibition of images from Magnum photographer Peter Marlow reveals the enigmatic in the everyday…
Point of Interest opened at the Wapping Project Bankside today, and comprises of 37 photographs that Marlow has chosen from several thousand images he has taken over the last 20 years. Marlow is best known for his photojournalism, and this body of work has been made alongside his major journalistic projects. Taken out of their original context, with the narrative thread that would normally bind them together lost, the images here reflect odd and uncertain moments that might usually be missed. All are empty of people, and yet human influence is evident in most of the shots, with the viewer left to imagine what might have occurred to create the unlikely and intriguing scenes.
