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.

This interactive talk will reveal behind-the-scenes details about the production of these intricate, sculpture-based images, and feature some of the physical pieces involved. For more information about Kathleen and her work, please visit kathleenfinlay.com .

The Tintype Studio was conceptualized in the summer of 2010 when four friends, while on a camping trip in Northern Ontario, decided they wanted to work together through the craft of the wet plate collodian process.

The Tintype Studio revisits a historical photographic tradition to create a unique image on a metal surface. They revive this process in its traditional context, the outdoor fair, by offering a fun, participatory, and retro take on the instant photograph. Their tintype portrait service and period-style booth give the public a chance to experience a chapter in the history of photography.

In this Life After Digital talk, perhaps more properly referred to as Life Way Before Digital, members of The Tintype Studio describe their modern-day traveling art practice and the process through which their work is created.
