The Conservation Halton (CH) Foundation is planning a fund-raising event involving two unique photographs with an Italian theme. The event, called an Italian Celebration of Life, will take place at the DiMario's Trattoria Restaurant in Burlington February 5. Participants will enjoy a taste of fine Italian wine and food while experiencing the story of two unique photographs taken decades and worlds apart. The first photograph, taken by photographer Ruth Orkin, is called American Girl in Italy, 1951. The other photo, taken this year on the streets of Burlington, simulates the scene of the first, now recognized internationally as a classic. The simulated photo has been called Canadian Girl in Burlington, 2005.

Both photos include a beautiful woman walking down the street while being looked at by several men. The models in both photos will be at the event to sign the limited-edition photo prints that each ticket holder will receive. Participants will also receive a photo gallery book entitled American Girl in Italy-- The Making of a Classic. Proceeds from the event will support CH Foundation's R. Ross Craig Discovery Centre at the Mountsberg Conservation Area and Princess Margaret Hospital's Cervical Cancer Early Detection Research Program . The model in the original photograph, is Ninalee Craig, a former resident of Burlington and life director of the conservation foundation. Tickets are $150 each and are available by calling Marino at 905-333-8889.
