’08.14-10.19’ is a photobook by London-based photographer, Rosie Marks, featuring 526 images taken over a five year period between August 2014 and May 2019.

A book was never Marks’ intention when she started taking these photos, they started as more of a reaction against the abundant and deceptive presentation of self-image via social media. She took pictures as a way to capture people in what she felt to be their truest and least self aware state; an unguarded and purer view into the trivialities of others’ lives.

“Taking these pictures was and still is a way of searching for honesty, something I have seldom found while someone is aware of the camera in front of them.”—Rosie Marks, 2020
