Passing of a Legendary Photographer

Glenn Capers (1950 – 2017)

I heard yesterday that Glenn had died on Monday of this week, in Colorado Springs. He was 67.

I had the honour of erecting his birth chart, with his permission. Here it is:




If ever there was a man who wore his heart and his mind on his sleeve, for all the world to see, it was Glenn.

His social commentary through his photo journalism was a wonder to behold. He didn’t bother with the rich and famous, he photographed the downtrodden, the ‘normal’ and the eccentric.

But, more than that, my favourites are the photos he took of nature. I aspire to his art.

Thank you, Glenn, for living your life so vivaciously. We will miss you.

    I was so pleased to discover your post about Glenn. Glenn and I have been friends since the early 1980s when we started (he a photographer and I a journalist) with the now defunct San Bernardino Sun. The Sun was a Gannett paper that, at that time, was starting USA Today and also training minority journalists like Glenn and I. Glenn went on to become an internationally award winning photographer and all around good guy. We stayed friends over the years and when several decades ago, he married the love of his life, Roma, I also became and am still friends with her. If not for his desire to always return home to Roma from his various assignments around the world, I’m not sure I would have seen him. I’ve never heard of a birth chart. But, if I can afford it, I’d like to see if you can do one for me and for others in my family. I don’t use WordPress much and it took a long time to log in. But, I did hit the like button. So, perhaps we can communicate via Facebook. But, yes, Glenn was a wonderful and wonderfully talented and giving person. Please beware, one of his older female assistants based in Italy tried to get his deceased mom’s (Virginia Capers) Tony Award from me (his family has it) and rights to his photos while Glenn lay dying in December. She even flew to the United States, tricked his wife into letting her visit him in the hospital, and tried to get him to sign his photo rights over to her while he was on a respirator. For someone who did so much for so many, he deserved so much better on his death bed. If you contact me, I will give you his wife’s contact info. Thanks again.
