Red Bricks

Red Bricks by Jesse Marlow

This photograph is from an ongoing body of work titled Don’t Just Tell Them, Show Them by artist Jesse Marlow.  This series has been shot over numerous years and selected images from it have been exhibited and published extensively both locally and internationally.

This body of work is a visual reaction to encounters in the artist’s daily travels. It’s about searching for the unusual in the ordinary; an ambiguity that lies just below the surface.

Set in the environment of everyday, Marlow’s  practice explores the banality of modern day existence through themes of abandonment, suburbia and daily rituals.

In 2011, Marlow was the inaugural winner of the International Street Photography Prize. He also won the MGA Bowness Prize in 2012.

His work is represented in numerous public and private collections including Monash Gallery of Art, Australian Parliament House  Canberra, State Library of Victoria, City of Melbourne and City of Boroondara.
