Brief Summary
My name is Ronnie Caplan - I'm an event producer / creative director / writer, who travels extensively for work.  Always having my camera with me, I've finally decided to express myself beyond the realm of the stage, and from within the confines of experiential live events and corporate theater -thus creating stunning, fantastical and wonderful, original works of art.

"each piece is like a hissing cobra, about to piercingly strike out from a lackluster landscape."

My photos have been taken in up and down the coast of Southern California, NYC, Montreal, Toronto, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Mexico . . .

Presented in a myriad of mixed medias and emotions, with modish subjects and series - my work ultimately evokes poignant ruminations on art in the streets, with new portrayals of hackneyed tourismo topics, found rhapsody in the everyday mundane scene, and, by looking ever so closely, finding buried beauty and covert charm where no one can see it.

Composition and color play a large part in unearthing the esoteric charm and symmetry everywhere. . . my work is portrayed in crazily- converted, FUN pop culture-oriented ways and means . . .

"a perceptible pastiche of visual harmony, with perfect pitch."
