Lucy Capehart’s photographic prints capture the exotic and often unseen aspects of common objects, and the precarious beauty of fleeting, everyday moments.
Much of the clothing depicted in Capehart’s cyanotypes belonged to family members--dresses, blouses, shirts, jackets and undergarments that has been stored away and largely forgotten. As an artist, she examines the resonating power of these objects, their ability to shape memory and unfold stories.
Capehart has an MFA from the University of Montana, Missoula. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in New York, Seattle, Portland, Missoula and elsewhere. Her photography as been published in the New York Times Sophisticated Traveler Magazine, Oxford American, Architecture and in the book, Local Heroes Changing America.
