Hitchhikers: Thorny African Seeds Photographed by Dillon Marsh

Published Jun 17, 2019

Dillon Marsh is a photographic artist based in Cape Town, South Africa. In his ‘Hitchhiker’ series, he uses macro photography to capture the intricate details of thorny African seeds commonly known as ‘hitchhikers’.

“Seeds in the form of thorns and burs are familiar features of the tall grass or underbrush of South African landscapes. Some bear hooks and barbs designed to latch onto the fur and fleece of passing animals, while others grow sharp spikes intended to pierce hooves and feet. This allows them to spread to new areas, even crossing to other continents, earning them the collective name ‘hitchhiker plants’.”
