    Lawrence Warren

    Retired Employee | Langara Pioneer

    Lawrence played an instrumental role in Langara becoming an independent College in 1994. Larry was President of the Langara Faculty Association (LFA) through almost all of the 1990s, including during the strike of Nov/Dec 1992. It was Larry’s political acumen and leadership that led the LFA to decide that this was the time to persuade the VCC Board and President to support the independence of Langara. They joined efforts to convince the provincial government to agree to the change, and Langara College was born. Larry also continued the LFA tradition of positive collaboration with management and established an excellent relationship with the new Langara College leadership and Board of Governors going forward.

    Langara Alum | Visual Artist

    Kevin is a visual artist, commercial photographer and retoucher, and educator. With his company Cake Imagery, he works with top creative agencies and advertising photographers in Vancouver and around the world. He mixes his technical foundation from the commercial world into his fine art pieces creating visually compelling photo composites. His current work focuses on distilling and amplifying narratives found in urban spaces via highly controlled, concept-driven compositions, exploring the experience of the wildlife living amongst us in our cities. His recent exhibition series The Special examined Vancouver’s history and culture by combining separately photographed structures into hyper-real, imaginary streetscapes. The series was widely exhibited in both group and solo shows throughout the city. 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. Kevin also teaches photography with Langara College Continuing Studies.
