Cape Town based photographer, magazine editor, director and online radio host Dylan Culhane has produced a remarkable series of images he took in Lesotho during a December visit. Lesotho is nicknamed ‘the mountain kingdom’ for it’s unique geography it being the only independent state in the world that lies entirely above 1,000 metres in elevation.

The series of striking photographs are of the spectacular Lesotho landscapes. Created without digital manipulation, the series has been constructed with multiple exposures, paint, collage and filters on 35mm film to produce a vivid, psychedelic portrayal of this stunning country.

Being an analogue enthusiast, Dylan is becoming well known for images like these despite his accomplishments as a portrait photographer. He says, “Over the years my style has evolved to become increasingly meticulous, layering organic and architectural elements upon each other as multiple exposures on celluloid. Most of the time (though not always) I resist the lure of digital manipulation, using in-camera techniques to create surreal images more akin to illustration, painting, or digital design than photography.”
