Lori Birkbeck is an award winning, multimedia artist based in Toronto, Canada. She completed her BFA from OCAD University and her artwork has been shown in Canada and Japan.

The work she creates focuses on capturing the elusive, ephemeral aspects of memories and nostalgia by digitally printing her soft focus photographs onto sheer fabric and other materials. The ethereal, distorted images resemble paintings, and by arranging the photos in layers she combines different memories together. These delicate, pastel style photographs reference the countless small details in life and moments that are unnoticed or lost.
