"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."
Inspired originally by the notion of discovery through reflections, Celia Rogge takes a personal, inquisitive lens to everyday life. She focuses on finding beauty in the detail. She finds the hidden obvious in her work, the sublime in detail and the emotional in the unemotional.
The German Embassy in Washington DC opened a one year exhibit in March 2016: Key Elements Of Light And Structure and the Consulate of the Federal Republic of Germany in New York held a retrospective of her work in November 2015.
In her vibrant manifestations, of New York Reflections and London Reflections, she applies her reflections to New York and London's architecture and street photography and elevates the contours of these metropolises to another perceptive level. Before unseen ornamental structures and normal pedestrians are filtered through the transformative power of light become visible from behind the apparent and engage the viewer in new ways.
Calliope was unveiled at ArtMarketHamptons 2014 by Galerie Mourlot; the full exhibition was on view November 2014- April 2015 at the gallery’s showroom in New York City. Calliope offers a different projection of the transformative power of light. Calliope, the photographer’s muse, captured here in infrared photography, allows for a transcendence into an otherworldliness.
