Christy Lee Rogers

Nashville, Tennessee, USA

Christy Lee Rogers is an International visual artist from Kailua, Hawaii, and now living in Nashville, Tennessee. In April 2019 she won the world's largest photo competition, the SONY WORLD PHOTO AWARDS, as "Photographer of the Year" held in London, England in Somerset House. 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 her original and clever technique to a barrage of bodies submerged in water during the night, and creates her effects using the refraction of light. 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 globally from Paris, London, Italy, Mexico City to Shanghai, Sao Paulo, South Africa, Los Angeles and more, and are held in private and public collections throughout the world. She has been featured in International Magazines, including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar Art China, Elle Decoration, Global Times, The Independent, Casa Vogue, Photo Technique, Photo Korea and others. Rogers’ "Reckless Unbound" is currently housed at Longleat House in the UK; the stately home, which is the seat of the Marquesses of Bath and also home to Renaissance gems of the Italian masters, like Titian’s "Rest on the Flight into Egypt." Rogers' art has been featured on several album covers, and her images were selected for the 2013–2014 performance season of the Angers-Nantes Opera in France.
