I discovered Claudia Rogge two years ago. She is a German artist and photographer whose bodies collection creates a wide range of artistic human patterns. One of her cycle of works is inspired by Dante’s Divine Comedy and illustrates Hell, Purgatory and Paradise in her personal vision. These images remind me of the atmosphere of Baroque paintings but we can also note provocative and obsessive details hinting at sodomy and perversion. Good and evil are mixed and we walk with our eyes through the Dante’s Inferno.
