    Paul Caponigro in Carmel, CA for lecture on February 8, 2020, 3-5 pm

    This is a rare opportunity to hear, and speak with, a master of the silver print.

    Paul's career spans almost seventy years, devoted to the art and technique of photography. You will leave inspired!

    Wish I could be there. Won't be in town until Mid March. Next time I will make arrangements to coordinate special events like this one because they only happen occasionally. Thanks!

    I saw the first run production in Palo Alto a couple of years back. An interesting presentation that was well attended and free.

    It was standing room only. Great presentation of some of his work and some stories behind them.

    I studied with Paul in the early '80's...and participated in a group show (with panel discussion) with he and other photographers four years ago. Was so nice to see how well Paul had aged - he shared lots of great stories/anecdotes and was very excited about an upcoming Ireland trip.

    I sadly missed him at his Pucker Gallery (Boston) opening last summer...and am very sad to have missed this one as well. But its so great to hear that there was an SRO crowd at this event...he so deserves this, as well as a huge "thank you" from all of us. I wish Paul the very best in his continued exploration of landscapes both interior and exterior...metaphysical and real.

    Thanks for the report. I'm not surprised that it was a standing room only event.

    Often as I pass through my finishing area on the way to the adjacent darkroom, I glance at the prints on the wall. Most are mine, however one is particularly inspirational; it is a print Paul gave me from his Hartford Wall series made in 1959. I met him that year in Boston when I was eighteen, and Paul in his mid-twenties. He was well on his way to becoming one of the greats in the art we share.

    After his 1991 accident, by his account a near-death experience, it took him eight years to again pursue his photography in earnest. I am pleased to know that in 2020 Paul is still sharing his life and photographs with a large audience. Well deserved.
