Opening tomorrow at London's Michael Hoppen Gallery, ‘Measuring Infinity’ – on view until 23 December – is a solo exhibition from photographer Chloe Sells, who spent the last two years documenting the heart of Botswana’s Kalahari Desert, the Makgadikgadi Salt Pan. Sells plays with alchemic processing in the darkroom, helping her large-format photographs bring new life to the arid landscape. The artist’s experimentation with hand drawing and paint renders a new perspective on landscape photography; though the horizon line, seen in each work, creates an understanding between the fixed and altered layers.

Aspen-born photographer Chloe Sells graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2003, and has since continued to progress as an artist that questions the finite nature of our planet, our existence and the lines in between.
With a unique method placed somewhere between documentary and analogue layering, Sells uses medium and large format cameras and sometimes works upon the surface of developed works using paint, marker and ink.
