“Istanbul Specials” is an addendum to my exhibition series The Special, which features digitally crafted, imaginary, hyper-real streetscapes of Vancouver houses, including the ubiquitous and derisively named “Vancouver Specials”. Here, I explore how a ubiquitous housing style in a major world city with a distinctively different cultural heritage compares and contrasts with our own.

About the artist

Kevin Lanthier
Vancouver, BC

Kevin Lanthier is a visual artist, commercial photographer /retoucher and educator. He brings a strong technical foundation for digital postproduction to his creative work, building his images from dozens, if not hundreds, of separate photographs to create scenes and convey ideas in ways not possible with traditional photography alone. His current work focuses on distilling and amplifying narratives found in urban spaces via highly controlled, concept-driven compositions.
