Quentin Chester is an award-winning photographer and writer. His abiding interests are nature and landscape. A regular contributor to Australian Geographic and Wild for more than three decades, his books include Australia's Wild Islands and The Kimberley: Horizons of Stone (both with Alasdair McGregor), as well as two essay collections: The Wild Calling and Tales from the Bush. 

In the same spirit as his writing, Quentin's wilderness photography reveals hard-won moments of natural intimacy and awakening. Based on Kangaroo Island, his images feature in a variety of exhibitions and editorial work, along with limited edition prints available at Fine Art Kangaroo Island.

His current projects include monochrome images of coastal geomorphology that are part of Island to Inland, a 2017 SALA exhibition of ten island artists coordinated by Country Arts SA.

Meanwhile, examples of his most recent work appear regularly at @quentinchester and Quentin Chester Photography.
