    Kevin Lanthier

    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.
