Jerry Kapler: Manipulating Reality

Jerry Kapler’s current photography endeavors have included creating conceptual images which tell a story. He begins with his own original digital images and scans of older black and white negatives from the 1960s and 70s, which have been colorized in Photoshop. His ideas are expressed in individual images or with three to five images, which create a narrative.

When generating a new piece, Jerry’s goal is to create a surreal environment that will evoke emotion in the viewer. Even though the subject matter may contain religious or death elements, the initial underlying motivation is to see how these individual elements create a final interesting result. In essence, he enjoys putting together images that surprises both himself and the viewer. His strongest influences have been the surrealist Maggie Taylor and René Magritte as well as numerous medieval artists.
