Cathy Marshall, a New Zealand–born photographer living in Melbourne, Australia, focuses primarily on fashion and portraiture. She's been published by Oyster magazine, i-D, and Feature Shoot. Her most recent project, "Into Death Valley," explores the boredom and more mundane aspects of everyday life for those who live and work in the California desert, which boasts the highest temperature ever recorded on Earth.
