The Odyssey of Christy Rogers

The first time I saw Christy Rogers' work I was stunned by the mysterious and beautiful images she created photographing women underwater.

The collection was called Sirens.

She's been working on a new collection this past year, called Odyssey.

This new collection features a deeper, more vivid exploration of color and includes male images.

The images are completely created within her camera- nothing is retouched or manipulated.

There are more than 100 life-sized images and Rogers says "each image represents a character that embodies this other-worldly story of good versus evil."

There's much more I could say, but I think the work says everything you need to know about it.

My hope is for a Bay Area gallery to take note of the terrifying beauty of these photographs and have an exhibit of her work here.

It's simply thrilling.

Rogers' work is currently on exhibit at the James Gray Gallery, Bergamot Station in Santa Monica, California; Laura Rathe Fine Art in Houston, Texas, Cedar Street Galleries and Fine Art Associates in Honolulu, Hawaii and will soon be on display during the New Orleans PhotoNola Photography Festival and at the Honolulu Academy of Arts, at Linekona.
