For What It’s Worth By Dillon Marsh
- Anke Nunheim
In the landscape series ‘For what it’s worth’ south african photographer and artist Dillon Marsh explores the manmade features in our landscapes and reveals curious details about our relationship with the environment. His series as an attempt to quantify mining, an industry that has shaped the history and economy of the country he lives in radically. His images combine photography and computer generated elements, using extraction rates and calculate a single solid orb to visualize the output of a mine. Marsh says ‘Whether they are active or long dormant, mines speak of a combination of sacrifice and gain’.
