Christopher Capozziello (born 1980) is a freelance photographer and a founding member of AEVUM. His work focuses on documenting both life around him, and stories that are outside of his own experiences. He 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. As a photojournalist, his method of making pictures is not something new or incredibly deep – it is, simply, to tell the truth.
His work has been recognized by World Press Photo, the Alexia Foundation, the Golden Light Awards, the National Headliner Awards, and the China International Press Photo Contest. Christopher’s clients and publications include The New York Times, TIME, Newsweek, L’Express, The Dallas Morning News, The Wall Street Journal, World Vision, Christianity Today, Samaritan’s Purse, Open Society Institute, and The Sunday London Times Magazine, among others.
Christopher currently lives in Hamden, Connecticut, where he is accepting assignments and working on a long-term project about his twin brother, who has cerebral palsy. He also exhibits two of his projects: “A Diary of Healing,” and “For God, Race and Country” at Colleges and Universities throughout the country.
