Shot in France's World Heritage city of Arles during the Rencontres d'Arles - the world's largest photography gathering - Where Profit is Made presents a different reality to that of the city's vaunted Roman remains and Van Gogh memorabilia.

Excluded from any guidebook, this is an Arles of desolate industrial zones, poverty-stricken traveler encampments, and high-security prisons. An area in which, palpably, the lust for profit reigns and costs are minimized.

Divided into three sections - Rails, Scraps and Streets - Marx's sharp insights into the nature of profit, capitalism - and the individual capitalist - are set against the photographer's images of the areas in which the process of profit-making takes place.
