Steve Rogers

 

Like other performing art forms, improv is notoriously ephermeral – and feels still more so since it's created in the same instant that it's performed. But the Austin improv scene is fortunate to have a dedicated chronicler of its fleeting work. Photographer Steve Rogers has been training his lens on local troupes and shows since 2010 – both for publicity images and performance records – and has captured more than 600 shows on film, at all four of the city's improv centers and all of its major annual events. To call it a treasure trove is a gross understatement; it's the history of an entire community.
