Underwater Photography of Christy Lee Rogers

This is simply marvelous: as the Sun set, Hawaiian artist Christy Lee Rogers submerged her models in water and photographed them using the last rays of light.

The billowing cloth in the water made the heavenly photos in the series titled "Muses," look like Baroque paintings.

Painters from the Baroque forward (I think it started with them) used to put wet clothes on models so that they could sculpt the cloth for maximum effect. There is a story of an opera singer who liked the idea so she had her dresser wet and sculpt her gowns. Looked good until the hot stage lights turned the water into steam and made it look like she was on fire.
