05 Feb Featured: Dillon Marsh
Lately, Fine Art Photographer Dillon Marsh has been getting much publicity on SA blogs, like Itswhatiminto and Handsome Things, for his images of unusual man and nature-made structures. Dillon has been passionate about photography ever since being drawn to the medium while studying at the University of Stellenbosch, where he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art in 2003.
The bulk of his portfolio is divided into Travel and Landscape. The first, a number of photographic series of the places he has visited. Under Landscape, are Dillon’s photo collections of disguised cellphone towers, pylons, wind-shaped Cape Town trees or oversized Weaver nests. However everyday or overlooked his subjects might be, in his choosing, photographing and collecting he makes us see how weird or fascinating they actually are.
Of his Landscape work, Dillon says, “My main focus as an artist in recent times has been directed towards my landscape series. In these series I seek to find things that are out of the ordinary, picking them out of the landscape where they might otherwise blend in. I choose objects that can be found in multitude within their environment so that I can depict a family of objects in a series of photographs. By displaying each project as such, I feel I am able to show both the character of the individual members, and the characteristics that make these objects a family.”
