Kate Ballis' 'Infra Realism' photo series

If you combine Palm Springs, my favorite Los Angeles getaway location, and pair it with fluorescent shades of pinks, purple, and reds, you’ll grab my attention in a heartbeat. Kate Ballis, an Australian photographer who considers herself an “aestheticist,” creates pieces that capture and explore the natural world in a grounded, but other-worldly fashion.

Her series Infra Realism does exactly that, taking the arid deserts and lush mid-century homes of the Palm Springs area and captures them with infrared film. The result is a version of the city that looks like a Star Trek acid trip (I mean that in the best way possible!). Here’s her take, from last year’s interview with Another Magazine:

“Before this I produced the Glace Noir series, which is very dark and mysterious.” These images use a similar subversion by representing vast glaciers in a palette of inky blacks and blues. “Both projects actually have a lot in common, it’s about representing this otherworldliness, and infrared has simply given me another tool to express what I was already exploring.”
