    He will appear via Zoom on Tuesday, Sept. 15, at 6:30 p.m. Please contact jpierce@librarycamden.org for a link to the talk.

    John Paul Caponigro is a pioneer among visual artists working with digital media, according to Camden Conference, in a news release. His art has been exhibited internationally and purchased by private and public collections including Princeton University, the Estée Lauder collection, and the Smithsonian.

    Caponigro combines his background in painting with traditional and alternative photographic processes using state-of-the-art digital technology. A form of environmental art in virtual space, his work is about the perception of nature and the nature of perception.

    “His life’s work is both a call to connection with nature and a call for conscientious creative interaction with our environment during a time of rapid change,” said the Conference. “Respected as an authority on creativity, photography, and fine art printing, he is a highly sought-after speaker, lecturing extensively at conferences, universities, and museums, in venues as diverse as Photoshop World, MIT, Google, and TEDx. He leads seminars and workshops around the globe.”

    Caponigro’s work has been published widely in numerous periodicals and books including Art News and The Ansel Adams Guide. Author of the video training series R/Evolution and the book Adobe Photoshop Master Class, for over twenty years he has been a contributing editor to a variety of magazines and websites including Camera Arts, Digital Photo Pro, The Huffington Post, and Apple.

    Caponigro is a member of the Photoshop Hall of Fame, an Epson Stylus Pro, and an X-Rite Coloratti. His clients include Adobe, Apple, Canon, Epson, Kodak, and Sony.

    This event is presented in anticipation of the 34th Annual Camden Conference — The Geopolitics of the Arctic: A Region in Peril, filmed on the Camden Opera House stage and presented to the world via Livestream on February 20-21, 2021.
