    Paul Caponigro Retrospective/CA

    A retrospective of Paul's work will open at Smith Andersen North in San Anselmo, CA. on September 14, 2013. Excellent gallery space and lighting, should be a stunning exhibit, as always.

    Any new work, or the same old stuff from 40 years ago?

    It would be a treat to see the 40 year old "stuff" again. I don't often get to see his originals and his old "stuff" is some of the best "stuff" ever created in the history of photography "stuff".

    Bill, the announcement indicates work from 1957 to 2013. His latest work that I am familiar with was done in 2008. He was very busy during the period of 1999 to 2008, mostly producing still life arrangements at his home. However, I still prefer "the same old stuff" from late 1950's and early 1960's. Are you a Caponigro fan? Let me guess! I'll report back after the show is up.

    Hmmm ... I'll still be out of town the 14th, but pretty easy for me to slide in there a bit later....

    Is it just me or do Caponigro's photos appear more and more kitschy as time goes on? Maybe it's because he came to the rocks and trees party too late or maybe it's because he took the crazy stuff coming out of the mouth of minor white too seriously. I mean come on, running white deer? Doubtful it will stand the test of time.

    LOL...but I actually saw one of those white deer one night when hiking back to the car from Chimney Rock at Pt. Reyes after photographing the sunset. Approaching the parking lot I heard something to my right rear and turned but didn't see anything and continued on only to hear something again and again stopped and turned. This time I saw it - a white deer about 30 meters away to my right and slowly walking in the same direction that I was. Was he tailing me? I never knew white deer existed until then!

    Recently I attended a lecture given by his son, John Paul, that was hosted by the Palo Alto Camera Club. It was a good presentation and after pondering how to duplicate the shafts of light beaming down from the sky in this terrific desert landscape shot, I saw that I could achieve the same effect with a deft application of Kodak crocein scarlet of which I have a bottle.

    So I'm definitely going!
