Delta Photo Club is pleased to begin the New Year with a presentation of Human: Nature by Kevin Lanthier at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 5.
Lanthier’s work tells stories about everyday life, through depictions of the familiar made archetypal. He builds concept-driven composite images, combining and juxtaposing photographed subjects in a photorealistic way to heighten narratives and distill meaning. His most recent series Human: Nature, explores and contrasts the lives of wildlife in human-altered spaces, while his widely exhibited award-winning series The Special examined Vancouver’s history and culture through hyper-real, nostalgic streetscapes. An addendum to this series, wherein the same process was applied to imagery he shot in Istanbul, was selected as a finalist for the Saltspring National Art Prize. His works are available at Ian Tan Gallery in Vancouver.

Lanthier will discuss a little bit about his life story to explain the origins of both the conceptual and technical aspects to his fine art photography, before moving onto the specific themes of each of his two primary bodies of work, Human: Nature and The Special. He will also share a bit about the technical process of shooting and compositing the images, focusing on one image as an example, followed by a Q&A.
The Zoom link for the workshop will be sent in the afternoon of Wednesday, Jan. 5.
