About: Benoit Capponi

aka b.capponi

Benoit Capponi nowadays works in communication technology after more than 20 years in theatre. His photography is mostly centered around the notion of time and duration. His images are worked upon at length, slowly and with a variety of technical means. However, he sees his work as craftsmanship aiming at a physical artefact: a print. Benoit Capponi uses analogue technologies, mostly film photography. // Après 20 ans passés dans les métiers l'accompagnement du spectacle vivant, travaille aujourd'hui dans la communication. Son travail photographique se fait pour l'essentiel autour de la notion de temps, de durée. Ses images sont lentement travaillées, avec les moyens techniques les plus divers, mais toujours envisagées comme un artisanat dont la finalité est l'image sur son support matériel, le tirage sur un support physique. Il utilise essentiellement des techniques analogiques, le plus souvent argentiques.

Benoit Capponi is Arnaud Thurel’s guest. His long-term work about World War I is showed in a BOP-exclusive exhibition. It relates to the deep research work Capponi has done based on some letters from the “poilus” ( French World War I infantryman, literally: “hairy one”.) and topographic studies of war field. This certainly is an impressive piece of work.
