"I sung of Chaos and eternal Night,
Taught by the heav’nly Muse to venture down
The dark descent, and up to re-ascend…” —Paradise Lost

Biblical themes and allegorical creations fascinate the German artist Claudia Rogge. Well regarded for her work using bodies en masse, her series “Lost in Paradise” and “Ever After” unabashedly embrace the epic works of Dante and Milton. Through careful staging and photoshop manipulation, Rogge thrusts viewers into the action. It’s live theatre, with all its spectacle and drama, in two dimensions.

Rogge’s work goes on view next month at GaleriArtist in Istanbul; a city, much like the stories in these photographs, filled with memories of a time long past. —Lane Nevares
