Ahead of her first retrospective, photographer Vikky Alexander mulls over her fascination with man-made versions of nature.

In July, the Vancouver Art Gallery will mount Extreme Beauty, an exhibition tracing the past three decades of Canadian photographer Vikky Alexander’s works. Organized by the institution’s chief curator emerita, Daina Augatis, the show explores the central themes that define the 60-year-old Alexander as a leading practitioner in the field of photo-conceptualism: the appropriated image, the articificiality of nature, and the seduction of space. Here, the artist discusses these themes and the experiences that led to them.
