The most majestic espresso experience

by Finlay MacKay

Finlay MacKay

Born in 1973 in Scotland. He studied Fine Art Photography at the Glasgow School of Art. In 2002, he began to work on his own. His first shots reveal an extremely original style, which draws on pop, street art and comic book style, as well as on more classical painting. His imagination, technical skill and expert use of lighting have allowed him to evolve, to the point where he is now one of the Olympians of the new generation of photographers. 

He began his collaboration with the New York Times Magazine in 2006, for which he made important portfolios and worked with several cover stories. In July 2011, he inaugurated an exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in London to celebrate the athletes of the 2012 Olympics. Reinterpreting his subjects with his unique imagination, MacKay has portrayed some of the most important sports and entertainment figures of our day. His portfolio as an advertising photographer includes campaigns for numerous worldwide brands.

Between seductive looks and sumptuous scenery, the queens of calendar number 16 invite us to their court to live a truly majestic experience. In every photo, the queen is accompanied by her king, and the king of the calendar of course is Lavazza espresso. Finlay MacKay was born in 1973 in Scotland. Finlay MacKay was born in 1973 in Scotland; after his studies he moved to London, where he became an assistant to important photographers including Elaine Constantine, with whom, from 1999 to 2002, he collaborated full time. His first works reveal a new and original style that draws from both street art and comics, as well as from the most classic English painting schools.
