Alex Coley is a photo-based artist from Tkaronto/Toronto, Ontario. She received an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Visual Studies from the University of Toronto in 2008 and subsequently trained in photography at NSCAD University in Halifax, NS. Coley's art practice is often interdisciplinary and references the history of photography and printmaking. There is honesty found in work that is laborious and tangible.
