Over The Threshold – A Conversation On Creativity With John Paul Caponigro and Sean Kernan

During this inspiring hour, John Paul and Sean share images, thoughts, and provocations for themselves and viewers. A lively question and answer session brings this free program to completion.

At some point, all photographers sense their best and truest work lies at a point somewhere out beyond the threshold of their comfort. The question then becomes how to get there.

John Paul Caponigro and Sean Kernan, long-time friends, approach creativity in different ways, but they both head for the same transformative experience. During this conversation, they share personal stories of moments that changed their art and their lives. Meditation, playing music, acting, drawing, and writing are just a few of the practices they use to make room for the revelations that improvisation brings. They offer insights into moving beyond habitual practices and making space for the unknown, which is where the magic of the creative process happens.
