2022 Finalists

Jesse MARLOW

Artist statement: It is in the daily grind that I tend to find the most interesting moments, often small and inconsequential, that transform a scene into being entirely unexpected and arresting. The challenge lies in the awareness of my surroundings, where I have to be both predictive and reactive to any one specific moment, and sense where and when to be positioned if it were to occur. It is this inherent uncertainty in street photography that continues to stimulate me, knowing that each morning I leave the house I may come home with an image that can’t be captured again – quintessentially in the present, documented for the future as a moment in history.
