The Baroque period art is something you cannot miss. It speaks for itself, it screams "baroque" through all its intricate compositions and etheral use of light. Baroque art is something almost impossible to reproduce with anything else except oil paints. That until virtual artist Christy Lee Rogers proves us wrong and comes forth with something as amazing: underwater photography.

Caravaggio's light and shadow contrasts, Gentileschi's movement focus or Rubens' rich colour palette, all of these find their match in Rogers' clever use of figures and flowing drapery intertwined underwater. Each picture you are about to see below are part of the series called "Muses" and it is shot at night in a pool that's been illuminated. With Rogers' own magic, the characters are basically bathed in light as they intertwine underwater.  Take a look!
