Hawaii-born photographer Christy Lee Rogers shoots under water to create photographic works that push the possibilities of movement, color and light. Commissioned by Apple and shoot only with an iPhone.
Water is my collaborator. I feel like we are working together to create something that is not here, in reality. I can do things that I can’t necessarily do on land or in reality. I’ve just been experimenting with it to see how far I can push things – light, color and movement…Water has these dichotomies. It’s powerful and it’s dangerous, but then there’s beauty. Water is healing and nurturing and life giving, and because I think that’s how we are as humans, how do we find that balance?Christy Lee Rogers
