Stephen Capozzoli takes photographs of his surroundings with a gritty urban eye influenced by growing up in New York City and his 20 years experience as a NYPD cop in the East Village of the ‘80s and ‘90s. He has been a full time resident of Southold since 2004, but has been spending time on the East End since the 1970s. After giving up photography in 1985 he has returned to it in the last few years. Capozzoli was quite active in the punk rock and arts scene in Soho in the late 70s and early ‘80s and worked with Paul Tschinkel making videos for the classic Inner-Tube series. He has had video presentations at The Kitchen Center for Video, Music, and Dance as well as photography presentations at The Soho Photo Gallery and 55 Mercer Gallery. His alter ego, Frankie Neptune is a prolific internet writer of thought-provoking short stories and has published a novel: NYPD The Way Things Were.
