Paul Caponigro

Represented by Pucker Gallery since 2010

BORN: 1932 in Boston, Massachusetts
RESIDES: Cushing, Maine

Paul Caponigro is renowned as one of America’s most significant photographers. At the age of thirteen, he began to explore the world around him with his camera and has subsequently sustained a career spanning six decades. Acclaimed for his spiritually moving images of Stonehenge and other Celtic megaliths of England and Ireland, Caponigro has also photographed the temples, shrines, sacred gardens of Japan, and inspires viewers with glimpses of the mystical woodland of his native New England. Approaching nature receptively, Caponigro prefers to utilize an intuitive focus rather than merely arranging or recording forms and surface details. An unparalleled ability to engage the viewer in the mystical presence concealed in nature continues to leave a lasting contribution to photography. Currently, Caponigro has exhibited and taught throughout the United States and abroad. As a recipient of two Guggenheim fellowships and three National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) grants, in 2001 he received the Centenary Medal from the Royal Photographic Society, in recognition of his significant contribution to the art of photography. Caponigro’s images are included in most history of photography texts and numerous museum collections, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
