Conversely, in the body of work Diamonds Aren’t Forever Marsh portrays abandoned farmhouses and decrepit mining towns of the Diamond Coast of South Africa and Namibia, capturing human made changes. In these images the impact on the life of communities is conveyed by focusing on abandoned buildings and scrapped cars, excluding all human trace. Following on the longstanding tradition of landscape photography the artist represents human beings symbolically through natural space or architecture, hence delivering a subtle narrative constructed from absence.
