A Quarter of a Million Miles
Christy Lee Rogers is a visual artist from Kailua, Hawaii. Her obsession with water as a medium for breaking the conventions of contemporary photography has led to her work being compared to Baroque painting masters like Caravaggio. Boisterous in color and complexity, Rogers applies her technique to a formation of human bodies submerged in water during the night, creating refracted light effects naturally in-camera. Through a fragile process of experimentation, she builds elaborate scenes of coalesced colors and entangled bodies that exalt the human character as one of vigor and warmth, while also capturing the beauty and vulnerability of the tragic experience that is the human condition.
Rogers’ works have been exhibited internationally and are held in private and public collections throughout the world. She has been featured in international magazines, including Harper’s Bazaar, Art China, Eyemazing, The Independent, Casa Vogue, Photo Technique, and others. Rogers’ work Reckless Unbound is currently installed at Longleat House in the UK, which is the seat of the Marquess of Bath and also home to Renaissance gems of the Italian masters, like Titian’s Rest on the Flight into Egypt.
