Rosie Marks (b. London, 1993) documents idle subjects as they focus on their day-to-day lives. Her subjects are engrossed in their worlds, her fascination with them usually left unrequited.

Marks’ voyeuristic eye allows for the absence of sentimentality, giving her the ability to capture the oddities amid human behaviour. Much of Marks’ work takes place in scenarios where people are their most free - teenagers at prom, couples on holiday or groups in Miami during Art Basel - are caught with such matter-of-fact that humour and humility occur at once, asserting or debunking assumptions of their idiosyncratic existences. She has created imagery and films for Martine Rose, Miu Miu and Marc Jacobs. Marks also regularly contributes to The New York Times and Double magazine.

Marks published her first book in 2021, ‘08.14-10.19’, featuring 526 images taken over a five-year period between August 2014 and May 2019. Her second book, published in 2022 by Kiko Kokostadinov and Hysteric Glamour is a photographic essay. The eleven chapters in this book, explore current cultural notions of beauty and glamour. Marks lives and works in London.
