Christy Lee Rogers evokes Baroque painting in her luscious color photographs of people submerged in water. Born in Hawaii and now working in Los Angeles, Rogers began working with underwater photography as a reprieve from her film work. Self-taught, she begins her shoots around sunset, using natural light to create chromatic relations that defy conventions of photography. The drama of figures submerged in water creates a dual sense of struggle and purification in the work. “I think at the basic core is that search for freedom and that common bond between all of us,” Rogers has said.
