Summer Newsletter 18'A review of the past few months at Michael Hoppen Gallery June 28, 2018
We have had a very busy few months with Photo London bringing many photography lovers to the fair and to the gallery. I was delighted to have seen so many wonderful new pieces at Photo London - especially the exhibition curated by Hans Kraus. Photography, up until only a few years ago, was a physics and chemistry process. Whilst the chemistry has almost disappeared or at least the choices photographers had have gone, the physics is still there, and now the computer and phone have also joined the range of tools available to photographers.

Michael Hoppen Gallery will be exhibiting work from 16 artists
Chloe Sells divides her time between her home in Botswana, Africa, where she photographs with a large format camera, and London, England, where she processes and prints her work. Each of her prints is the result of her in-depth manipulation of the printing process in the darkroom, at once physical, spontaneous and deliberate. She employs experimental and spontaneous methods such as screens, overlays, open-weave fabrics and movements of the paper, expertly combined to create her unique, bold and dreamy photographs. Informed by extensive travel, residence and immersion in countries foreign to her, Sells explores the question of how places are defined, while speculating on the consequences of human experience of place.
Sells’ arrangements become less a document of an actual place, and more an allegory of her relationships to those places.
