John Paul Caponigro

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 has been purchased by 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 cialiscialiscialiscialis nature as well as his practice within it, and their mutual interaction are considered. Many viewers find his work profoundly spiritual.

Respected as an authority on creativity and fine art digital printing, he is a highly sought after speaker, lecturing extensively at conferences, universities, and museums, in venues as diverse as Photoshop World and MIT. He teaches workshops globally.

John Paul’s work has been published widely in numerous periodicals and books including Art News and The Ansel Adams Guide.
