'Landmarks I'Dillon Marsh at blank projects
'Landmarks I' is the second solo exhibition by Dillon Marsh, featuring the landscape photographic series Limbo and Cross Country. According to Marsh: 'I tend to focus on things that are out of the ordinary, picking them out of the landscape where they might otherwise blend in. In each case I have chosen 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'.
Limbo (2012) is a series of photographs showing trees that have died, but not yet fallen. All these trees were photographed in various suburbs of the Cape Flats area of Cape Town, including Bridgetown, Bonteheuwel, Ruyterwacht, Windermere, and The Hague. About Cross Country (2012), Marsh explains, 'Illuminated crucifixes have become a common sight in many parts of South Africa, and this is particularly true for the town of Worcester and its surrounds. I became intrigued by the way these crosses decorate the landscape and photographed these seven with the intention of showing the effect these relatively small structures can have on the landscape at dusk'.
