The images reproduced in this work are photographed by Chloe Sells in Botswana, using large and medium format analogue cameras. The work is 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.
