Dillon Marsh graduated from the University of Stellenbosch in 2003 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art. During the course of my studies he was drawn to photography and has remained passionate about it ever since. His main focus as an artist has been directed towards landscape series. In these series he seeks to find things that are out of the ordinary, picking them out of the landscape where they might otherwise blend in. His latest project, For What It’s Worth, also incorporates computer generated imagery in an effort to reveal new perspectives that wouldn’t be achievable using photography alone.
