Kathleen Finlay is a Toronto-based commercial photographer who crosses the genres of fine art, editorial, corporate and advertising imaging. On June 19th, she and Italian-born multimedia artist Giovanni Pittalis will speak as part of the Life After Digital series about their work on a Children's book titled Naninoo and the Mystifying Cuccubarro. Finlay's collaboration with Pittalis, whose work as an illustrator, stylist and art director includes time with Jim Henson Productions, gave birth to richly colored, unique characters and elaborate dioramas that will engage young readers’ minds.
