Twenty black-and-white silver gelatin prints by Cushing photographer Paul Caponigro are on view at the Thomaston Cafe through the end of June. Caponigro is recognized as one of America’s most significant photographers. His work is in many museum photography collections.

The Farnsworth Museum in Rockland featured his work last year and honored him with its Maine in America Award.

Caponigro has received two Guggenheim Fellowships and three National Endowment for the Arts grants over a 50-year career.

In 2013, the Yale Museum of British Art will mount a major exhibition of Caponigro’s work in the British Isles.

Images on view in Thomaston range from Caponigro’s work with Celtic megaliths to landscapes and still lifes made in New Mexico and his native New England. The Thomaston Cafe, at Main (U.S. Route 1) and Knox streets, is open 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday to Saturday, 5:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.
