Get To Know Arduina Caponigro's Photography

People who take my workshops know my secret weapon, my wife, Arduina. It’s not just her technical knowledge it’s her warmth and hospitality. Those who visit us in our home know she’s the life of our parties. I mean who uses giant animal pool floats as lawn furniture?
When I first met her she was pursuing her MFA at and managing the digital labs of Maine Media Workshops. I’d never worked with someone as quick, smart, and knowledgeable. But that’s not why I married her. I fell in love with her because of her huge heart and her contagious enthusiasm. She’s the light of my life! She wants to share a little of that light with you now.
Her images are so whimsical you might think they’re staged rather than autobiographical. With or without a camera, she gives herself permission to play. On second glance, you’ll see they’re not unmindful of the sober undercurrents that run through our days. Her favorite quote is Milton’s “The mind is its own place and in itself, can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven.” You don’t have to guess which she chooses.

Geography

The locations include Antarctica, Spain, Arches National Park, Scoresbysund Greenland, and Maine.

Process

Continuing the momentum from the previous year I completed my first seriesof finished works with my iPhone – Land In Land. Processing images on location, sometimes seconds after making exposures, is a gamechanger. Even more interesting is the sense of seeing the image better at arm’s length, allowing me to see the composition and the subject simultaneously.

I was pleasantly surprised when another experiment worked as I combined images in the public domain from the Hubble telescope with my own exposures, expanding the images in my series Constellation to add images of deep space to those of stars observed with the naked eye.

Concepts

I continue to explore presenting many moments in time simultaneously to see one aspect of land through another. In more recent work, the detail and the overview are united in a single integrated experience. As ever, what’s behind and beyond shows through.

My use of abstraction has expanded from minimalism to include more complex maximal patterns.

Magic Moment

Perhaps the most sublime moments were found in Greenland’s, Scoresbysund, as the weather shifted to winter conditions creating dramatic katabatic winds and unusual ice conditions found only at the beginning of the season. Being on the only boat (a three-masted schooner built in the early 1900s) in the fiord system heightened the sense of adventure.

It was a very productive year; more than 75 new works released; more than 150 new studies made.

It’s challenging to choose so few images from so many – but it’s insightful. Try selecting your own top 12 images. Try selecting the top 12 images of your favorite artist(s).
