John Paul Caponigro combines his background in painting with traditional and alternative photographic processes using the digital platform. He is respected internationally as one of the most prominent artists working with digital media processes. Exhibited internationally, his work resides in numerous private and public collections including Princeton University, the Estée Lauder collection, and the Smithsonian.
Caponigro's primary focus is the natural world. The wastelands he photographs are breathtakingly beautiful, yet the conspicuous absences found within them add an unusual complexity and social relevance when issues surrounding the environment, the medium of photography and its changing nature as well as his practice within it, and their mutual interaction are considered. Many viewers find his work profoundly spiritual.
Well respected as an authority on creativity and fine digital printing John Paul teaches both privately in his studio and internationally at prominent workshops including The Santa Fe Photographic Workshops and The Maine Photographic Workshops. He lectures frequently at universities, museums, and conferences.
John Paul's work has been published widely. Reviews have appeared in numerous periodicals and books including Art News and The Ansel Adams Guide.
He is a contributing editor for Camera Arts and a columnist for Digital Photo Pro and Photoshop User. His book Adobe Photoshop Master Class (Adobe Press, 2003) is now in its second edition. John Paul is one of Canon's Explorers of Light and an Epson’s Stylus Pro. His clients include Adobe, Apple, Canon, Colorbyte, Epson, Gretag-MacBeth, Kodak, and Sony.
