"There is a magic that happens when, in one instant, at the stop of a shutter, the humbling beauty and captivating mystery of this world can transform into a relic to be kept, shown and shared forever. It is this magic I strive to incubate in my work."
Kathleen Finlays photography opens minds and inspires imaginations. The viewer is invited into Finlays ethereal fantasy world of tall tales, traveling circus troupes and faraway lands to get lost in the moment and let time slow down. Finlays work provides its viewers a welcome daydream-like repose from the day to day.
Finlay shoots the majority of her work on Polaroid film. Using a personalized chemical treatment in her developing process allows Finlay to give every print unique marking. This added final touch to her creative process heightens the quality of each piece giving each print a feel of timelessness that will span generations.
Born in Montreal, Kathleen Finlay studied fine arts at York University where she graduated in 1992. She has since established herself in Toronto as an editorial and stock photographer specializing in lifestyle and portrait photography.
