Christy Lee Rogers is a self-taught photographer currently based out of both Los Angeles, California, and Kailua, Hawaii. Underwater photography is nothing new perse, however, the way in which Rogers approaches her set is simply beautiful with the use of gorgeous lighting in her work. Her work is undeniably contemporary yet also timeless; portions appear to be drawn from the Baroque period, where dynamic movement and overt emotion were at their height. Many have likened her work to the Baroque master Caravaggio, with her emotive dynamism and dramatic use of lighting. Using pronounced chiaroscuro, where light and dark violently contrast, the light in her images appears to alternately engulf the female form or to be on the verge of dwindling to nothing, leaving them alone in the abyss of boundless space. Light isolates her figures, but her use of spotlighting differs from Caravaggio in that it is atmospheric and benevolent; it insulates the figures from the space surrounding them, that empty space which allows light to strike her subjects, not just as transparent dissolvable images of people, but as solid, real, and seemingly impenetrable beings.
