Its people’s religious practices ranges from Indian-style Hinduism to Tibetan Buddhism. In this talk, photographers Ariel Estulin and Louis Au will present their work from their travels to Nepal.

LIFE AFTER DIGITAL was conceived from a photographer’s lament that there is no life after digital: you shoot hundreds of frames and are locked up at the computer for the rest of the day if not days, organizing, adjusting and processing files.

The Life After Digital initiative consists of intimate seminars and artist talks in the IX Gallery. Depending on the response, these may develop into workshops aimed at demystifying and smoothing out the digital workflow.

In partnership with guest artists and experts, we will inspire you while giving you the tools to work more efficiently, produce quality images and in the process reclaim a good portion of your personal time. Particular attention will be given to print-oriented issues, for artists who would like to explore the potential of current technologies to open new doors and bring ideas to life.

The LAD mandate is to have fun. Our goals are to create a community spirit, encourage discussion, and foster a better understanding of the possibilities of digital imaging and printing.
