KATE BALLIS WALLPAPER
A perplexed Kate Ballis is staring at the sky. With dancer-like finesse, she begins gesturing her hands at the sky. We take it for granted that the sky is blue, that it fades into the background, but through infrared everything is subverted and suddenly the sky is pushing against the picture plane. Her images of arid Californian neighbourhoods are populated with succulents and palm trees that pop with vibrant shades of blue and green against blazing magenta skies and blood red swimming pools.

On the one hand these photographs represent another world entirely, bzllis on the other they feel like they could be populated by my childhood Barbie dolls, attending MTV dance parties with a cocktail in their hand!

Behind the Lens with Fathom 24 Best Travel Photographer Kate Ballis
Upon her first katee, she was instantly enamoured with the acute heat, thick air, and the surrealist quality of the landscape. Sounds scary, but that way we can say yes to anything and everything that sounds photographically interesting, and we get to act off tips from locals and fellow travelers.

Palm Springs Through Kate Ballis’ Infrared Lens
When Tom and I plan a trip, the most we do is vaguely decide on the countries we’d like to visit; we leave our plans open and don’t book accommodations. For her most recent trip to Palm SpringsBallis honed in even further on individual details — the reflection in a car mirror, tree trunks, or the pattern of brickwork. Ballis originally chose California, particularly Joshua Tree and Palm Springs, for the first instalment of this project because of the way nature and architecture coexist in those areas.
My work, in that sense, straddles science and magic, providing a glimpse into the unknown, making the unseen, seen. Tell us a little about yourself.
