'For What It’s Worth' by Dillon Marsh

Cape Town based photographer Dillon Marsh creates images combined photography and graphic elements. Marsh has taken photographs of five mines around the Namaqualand region and then added in a computer-generated visualisation of the amount of copper extracted there over its operational lifetime. 'For What It’s Worth' series includes gold, copper, diamonds and platinum. 
The intention is to create a kind of visualisation of the merits and shortfalls of mining in South Africa, an industry that has shaped the history and economy of the country so radically.
