Inspired 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. In her vibrant manifestation, New York Reflections, she applies her reflections to New York architecture and street photography and elevates the contours of this metropolis to another perceptive level. Before unseen ornamental structures filtered through the transformative power of light become visible from behind the apparent and engage the viewer in new ways.
