The images reproduced in Flamingo, the second monograph by artist Chloe Sells, are adapted from photographs taken in the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans in Botswana, one of the largest breeding grounds for flamingos in the Southern Hemisphere. The photographs are created using an analogue large format camera and later printed in a traditional darkroom. The darkroom process is spontaneous and consuming, layering light, texture and form to interact with photographic alchemy. Some of the images are drawn on after they have been printed with paint and marker. Because of Sells’ method of working, each outcome is unique.
A selection of the works from Flamingo will be on display in her exhibition ‘The Form That Strength Has Left’ at NextLevel Galerie in Paris from 9 November – 23 December 2017.
Please be aware that when ordering a book, a cover will be allocated to you at random.
