Christopher Capozziello: The Distance Between Us

This is heavy, but interesting and well-crafted.

Christopher Capozziello, a photographer based in Connecticut, brings us a soundslide presentation about his brother who has cerebral palsy. Using his own voice as narrator, audio recordings of his brother’s voice, haunting B&W photographs, and some audio sound effects, Capozziello introduces us to his twin brother Nick. Capozziello also draws us into his own mind as he questions why someone has disease. The narrative is honest without being overly dramatic. The images provide enough drama – I think Capozziello has struck the right balance.

I particularly like the introduction of Nick’s voice: a question and answer. Wow – that introduces not just Nick but also his limitations and frustrations that Capozziello chronicles in this piece.
