Dillon Marsh’s South Easter
Each South African summer (between August and April) welcomes a strong, dry, and unrelenting wind that travels from False Bay down the coast to Capetown through to Blouberg. Known colloquially as the “Cape Doctor”, the wind is thought to be so consistent that it actually clears Capetown’s air of pollution and impurities. In places where the wind is strongest, like Cape Town Peninsula, trees lean permanently after having grown with these annual winds. Artist and photographer Dillon Marsh has captured the uncanny elegance of some of these trees, reminding us of the physical traces left by this invisible force.
For more fascinating work by Marsh, including photographic series about resourceful birds’s nests in the Kalahari and cell phone towers masquerading as palm trees, visit his website here.
