-- Christopher Capozziello believes that there is “a redemptive quality to photography;
that it can take the unpleasant or repulsive and make it beautiful, not by misleading anyone, but by allowing the viewer to stop and take a deeper look at the subject.” This can be seen through his body of work The Distance Between Us that showcases his twin brother’s fight with cerebral palsy. Christopher Capozziello’
s The Distance Between Us shows an elegance that simply expresses the truth about his subjects, no more, no less.
Christopher is a founding member of AEVUM, a photography collective in which the camera is used as a tool to find answers by photographing people from all walks of life. World Press Photo, the Alexia Foundation, the Golden Light Awards, the National Headliner Awards, and the China International Press Photo Contest have all recognized his work. The Distance Between Us is one of three projects Capozziello is currently working on; the other two, “A Diary of Healing” and “For God, Race and Country” can be seen in College and Universities throughout the country.
The Center is thrilled to present The Distance Between Us, a solo exhibition by Christopher Capozziello. The Distance Between Us is on exhibition in the Center for Fine Art Photography’
s North Gallery from March 2 - April 28, 2012. Please join us for the artist’s reception with acclaimed photographic artist Christopher Capozziello on Friday, March 2, beginning at 6:00 p.m.
