German born Celia Rogge has lived and worked in New York since the mid 1990s but has also called Berlin, London, Washington and Montreux her home.
Celia Rogge’s work is fundamentally influenced by living between two diverging cultures, continents, architecture and languages.
While her self-proclaimed motto is “Always Look Up…” this is meant firstly in a figurative way but by her own definition also meant in a spiritual way.
She is inspired by the notion of discovery through reflections and a passion for symmetry and linear structure.
Her architectural works of New York City, London and Berlin Reflections invite the viewer to a new perspective on the clear lines of these metropolises.
This zest for linear structure, order and the vanishing point are continued in her images of grand interiors and architecture throughout Europe, the United States and Australia.
In her daylight infrared photography common sights are filtered through the transformative power of light. Capturing this different frequency of light she discovers the emotional in the unemotional. Her vistas are elevated to a higher spiritual beauty.
"Light is the photographic medium par excellence; it is to the photographer what words are to the writer; color and paint to the painter; wood, metal, stone, or clay to the sculptor." Andreas Feininger
