Four months pregnant and in the privacy of her studio, Rogers discusses her underwater process and the details behind shooting her new collection “Of Smoke and Gold" in Hawaii. The collection opens in Lisbon, Portugal at Galeria de Arte AFK on Nov 2, 2013.
Rogers shoots still and video collection for London Fashion duo palmer//harding. Shot in water, both mediums explore the freedom and emotion that palmer//harding infused in their collection, along with the mystery of one of their signature designs.
Rogers" "Reckless Unbound" print at six and a half feet tall is now a part of Viscount Weymouth's and the Longleat House Collection, and will be amongst Italian Renaissance painting masterpieces by Titian, Tintoretto and others.
Longleat is an English stately home, currently the seat of the Marquesses of Bath, and is open to the public. The house reflects one family's collections over more than 400 years. Titian's "Rest on the Flight into Egypt", worth £5 million in 2002, was stolen in 1995 but was subsequently found and can be seen in the house.
The collections range from the magnificent (paintings and furniture ) to the macabre (the blood-stained vest worn by Charles I at his execution in 1649). The 16th-century English portraits, sporting scenes and Italian Old Masters that decorate the walls are complemented by English, French, Italian and furniture, while the current Marquess of Bath’s exuberant murals can be seen in his private apartments. Longleat’s seven libraries between them house one of the largest book collections in Europe, with over 40,000 volumes.
Way ahead of his time and on the verge of creating a whole new music genre, Jared Dunne of 22tape debuts his new album "Dischordance" though the Concrete Sound System label. Rogers creates the album cover art to go along with his unique creations.
Jared says "it was made when i had some really great analogue gear (eurorack modular and pedals). i used a ton of vinyl samples and a bunch of found sounds, and melodic lines that i composed. i then mangled those sounds through the analogue fx while multitracking them to 4-track tape. i then took the individual tracks from the tape and brought them into the computer, and processed them through csound fx and did the final arrangement and mix in renoise."
Angers Nantes Opéra has selected eight of Rogers images to represent their 2013-2014 Opera performance and will host an exhibit of her work starting on May 29th in collaboration with Ten Productions, France.
Snap! is a 4-day photography celebration showcasing the work of renowned international and national photographers, as well as emerging talent. Four pieces were on exhibit during the festival. Thank you to everyone at SNAP for your kindness and support!
