Christy Lee Rogers, a master of underwater art, on the 2021 Lavazza calendar
Known for breaking the conventions of contemporary photography with her use of water, we go behind the scenes Christy Lee Rogers and the Lavazza calendar image. Lavazza is trying to build bridges between people, drawing them closer through the universal language of art. Having previously commissioned superstars like Annie Liebovitz and David LaChappelle, Lavazza commissioned Christy Lee Rogers to shoot the cover of their legendary calendar. The photographer – whose work has been compared to Baroque painting masters like Caravaggio, with her use of chiaroscuro lighting and dramatic movement – explains the concept behind her extraordinary image for the brand’s 2021 calendar.
