Shot entirely in a fishtank, "Color High" is an experimentation into how color and movement affect the human psyche, and how important color is to the human experience.

"My purpose behind the work is to question and find understanding in the craziness, tragedy, vulnerability, beauty and power of mankind." Christy Lee Rogers is a visual artist from Kailua, Hawaii. Her obsession with water as a medium for breaking the conventions of contemporary photography has led to her work being compared to Baroque painting masters like Caravaggio. Boisterous in color and complexity, Rogers applies her cunning technique to a barrage of bodies submerged in water during the night, and creates her effects using the refraction of light.
