The exhibition will feature more than 40 color photographs in large format depicting otherworldly underwater scenes culled from five of her previous collections, including her newest collection, Élan, for it’s French premiere. Rogers is no stranger to the Opéra House, Angers Nantes Opéra selected eight of Rogers' images to represent their Opera performances during 2013-2014 and also hosted an exhibit of her works at their Nantes Opera house.
This medal was given to Rogers for her and Eliane Nagata’s work presenting the "LE LYRISME DES ABYSES” exhibit in the city of Angers, France, and for their donation of “The Unending Journey” to the city. The work, a part of Rogers'’"Reckless Unbound” collection, will be on permanent display in the Grand Théâtre d’Angers Opera House.
So happy to join this new group exhibition in Mayfair, London.

Displaying 24 varied compositions, depicting a multiplicity of entangled bodies delicately floating in an underwater world, Rogers finds the perfect balance between the abstract, wild and classical. Each limited edition print draws inspiration from the splendour of 1920's Parisian circus and the romantic wonder of the Moulin Rouge. The extravagant scenes, captured during a unique shoot in Las Vegas, enlisted the help of some of the world’s premiere performance artists; dance masters, synchronized swimmers, aerialists, pole dancers and actors.
ÉLAN: French for vigour, spirit, and an enthusiasm typically revealed by assurance or brilliance of performance, is a fitting title for Christy Lee Rogers' debut body of work for The Outsiders this June. Contrasting bold ostentatious costumes with serene otherwordly movement, Rogers' astute images capture light and energy within the translucent space evoking a sense of wild abandonment and liberation.
