Life and work[edit]

Cappetta produced a series entitled Glendalis, a multi-year documentary of a young girl growing up in a Latin American community in New York City. Glendalis, was included in Nosotras: Portraits of Latinas, a group exhibition of the work of 8 photographers at University of Arkansas at Little Rock, 2010;[1][2] The Grace Museum, Abilene;[citation needed] Sonoma County Museum, 2010;[3] and Museo Alameda in San Antonio.[citation needed]

She is currently a faculty member at the International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York City.[4]

In 2019 Jonathan Feinstein of Vice profiled her little-known self-portraiture work. "For years, between commercial shoots and documentary projects, Angela Cappetta has photographed on the fly, grabbing in-between moments with New York City's chaotic landscape as her backdrop. On a bus, in a cab, somewhere where the available light is convenient and works, Cappetta makes self-portraits wherever she is. "I always shoot cars,” Cappetta says. "I will always shoot an interior. And then I always shoot myself. It's not very complicated, and it's always something available to shoot."[5]
