When I plunge into a pool of water chances are that any attempt at an underwater mugshot would be unlikely to catch me at my finest, let alone capture an image that could be in any way described as beautiful. In fact far far from it which may be why I find Christy Lee Rogers’ latest exhibit, Reckless Unbound quite so impressive. Capturing a barrage of bodies submerged in tropical Hawaiian waters in the dead of the night, Christy’s photographs are seriously beautiful.
But if bright colours, entangled limbs and just the right amount of abstraction doesn’t already have your heart racing with excitement, pretty incredibly Christy avoids all post-production manipulation and therefore the images laid before your eyes are simply the sole result of what was captured on the camera that very night. Pretty cool eh?
