Paul Caponigro Exhibit Now in Palm Bch Photocenter

Paul Caponigro (born 1932) stands among the foremost landscape photographers of our century. He is an artist who places technical perfection in the service of an intense, mystical sensibility. He once stated that, "photography is a medium, a language, through which I might come to experience directly, live more closely with, the interaction between myself and nature." In the late 1950s Caponigro studied with Minor White, finding in White's teaching both an inspiration and a challenge to pursue his own vision. For Caponigro this would mean not only refining his craft to its highest potential, but learning to approach nature receptively, intending, in his own words, "to sense an emotional shape or grasp some inner visitation."
Caponigro's first one-man exhibition took place at the George Eastman House in 1958. In 1960, Caponigro became a consultant for Polaroid Corporation in the photo-research department. During this time, he also began teaching photography part-time at Boston University. Since that time he has exhibited and taught workshops throughout the United States and abroad. Today his original photographs reside in most all major museum collections.

 There are two well known Caponigro photographers. Paul and John Paul.
So I was confused at first hearing of this exhibit and thought it was the younger who's work I would see at the Photocenter. I had just read something in a digital blog
about John Paul Caponigro who is young and very digital. I am not sure if they are related. 
You can read about him here. Share/Bookmark
