Cushing — Renowned photographer Paul Caponigro of Cushing will offer a retrospective of his work Sunday, April 30, at 4 p.m. in the Cushing Historical Society Meeting House on Hathorn Point Road.

Caponigro will project his photographs and offer commentary on his history and creative process. In this world of digital images, Caponigro is an old-school film, paper and chemical process photographer. He is internationally acclaimed for his spiritually moving images, ranging from Stonehenge and other Celtic megaliths of England and Ireland; to the temples, shrines and sacred gardens of Japan … and he brings the same reverence and attention to New England headstones.

Classically trained in piano, Caponigro has a wide-ranging sensitivity to the arts. The intensity of his presence is equal to the brilliance of his photographs. The community is invited to enjoy this rare opportunity to listen to the artist review his long and successful career, travels and observations.
