Infra Realism by Kate Ballis, published by Manuscript Publishing 2018. Artist Statement A sizzling playground for the wealthy, the wild and the wonderful, Palm Springs has long been an artistic muse and second home for me. But after photographing its Mars-like deserts, Mid-Century houses, retro pools and luxury vintage cars countless times, it became a bit ordinary to me. My eyes switched off, as they seem to do wherever I go about my daily life. Although I was still in love with the place, and just as mesmerised by the changing light on its undulating mountains, it was no longer my artistic muse, and so I sought to re-enchant the city and its surrounding landscapes through some other medium. Converting a digital camera for infrared, thus extending the edge of the visible spectrum exponentially, my viewfinder completely changed the way I saw PalmSprings, providing me with a window into a mysterious realm between reality and the surreal. And so, my INFRA REALISM series was born.
