Peter Marlow Foundation starts operations from 2023

The Peter Marlow Foundation encourages, examines and celebrates the photography of humanity, its impact and legacy. From 2023 it will do this from a gallery based in Dungeness, Kent, housing an extensive archive and library, and offering workshops, exhibitions, residencies and talks to schools, the public and professionals.

The Foundation aims to have an active gallery, workshop and residency space that will be well used by photographers, visitors to Dungeness and schools. The gallery will be a destination for those interested in photography and a unique cultural space for visitors to Dungeness. Its director is Jess Phillips. 

Peter Marlow (1952-2016) was an eminent photographer, a member and two-time President of the international photography cooperative, Magnum Photos. He was made an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society in 2006 and his work is held in 12 public collections worldwide. Born in Kenilworth, outside Coventry, Peter studied psychology at Manchester University, graduating in 1974. His photography career began in 1975 while working on an Italian cruise liner in the Caribbean. Peter’s work as a photographer spanned 41 years, capturing major world events for prestigious magazines and newspapers and his personal long form projects.
