Felicity Carter writes in Forbes:

At first sight, the work of Kate Ballis may not look like they're photographs, but they are. And her latest exhibition entitled, Hypercolour Fantasy: Infra Realism now showing at Los Angeles gallery, Garis & Hahn conjures up so many references.

Inspired by Richard Mosse's groundbreaking infrared documentary series, Ballis' Infra Realism series features 13 large-scale hyper-saturated and seductive photographs that look at Californian archetypes from modernist architecture to vintage cars through a rose-tinted lens, quite literally. At the intersection of science and magic are her technicolor landscapes-meet-dreamscapes.
