Since the late 60's to the mid 70's Christos Dikeakos' photographic practice has played an important role in the development of conceptual photography in Vancouver. His 80's and 90's photographic projects Sites and Place Names works, of Vancouver, Saskatoon, Athens and Berlin engage in the memories, histories and urban typologies within contemporary urban habitations. More recently Dikeakos has produced a traveling exhibition for the McMaster Museum of Art, which combines drawing, collage, sculpture and photography unpacking a 40-year work and thoughts on French-American artist Marcel Duchamp. His most recent exhibition Nature Morte, is an in depth photographic representation of the Apple Orchards of the southern Okanagan region of BC. Christos Dikeakos was born in Thessaloniki, Greece, and currently lives and works in Vancouver, British Columbia.
