Paul Caponigro

"Sunflower" Signed with Print

This book is a special 1985 publication of the original 1974 publication. Caponigro combines  “a purist’s faith in the mimetic quality of the medium with a mystical, visionary temperament… seeking a ‘realm of beauty’ beyond the control of reason” (New York Times). With meditative images especially attuned to nature’s evocative power, Caponigro has expanded Ansel Adams’ and “Edward Weston’s love of landscape towards the realm of mystery” (Frizot, 668), describing his continuing passion for the natural world as an attempt “‘to express and make visible the forces moving in and through nature… gaining contact ‘with the greater dimension-the landscape behind the landscape” (Photobook, 84).
