Kevin Lanthier is a visual artist, commercial photographer and retoucher, and educator. He brings a strong technical foundation for digital postproduction to his creative work, building his images from hundreds of separate photographs to create scenes and convey ideas in ways not possible with traditional photography. His highly controlled, concept-driven compositions distill and amplify the narrative of urban spaces and the wildlife living within them. In a recent exhibition series, The Special, Lanthier examined Vancouver’s history and culture by combining separately photographed structures into hyper-real, imaginary streetscapes.
