Quentin Chester is an award-winning photographer and writer with an abiding interest in the power of wild landscapes.
A contributor to Australian Geographic
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.
Quentin's wilderness photographs feature moments of natural intimacy and awakening. His home environs on Kangaroo Island are a major inspiration; so too the remote reaches of outback and coastal Australia. Images from these encounters feature in a variety of exhibitions and editorial assignments, along with limited edition art prints available through Fine Art Kangaroo Island
Recent projects include Island to Inland
, a touring exhibition of ten Kangaroo Island artists coordinated by Country Arts SA. His works are currently also on show through August 2019 as part of this year's Fine Art Kangaroo Island SALA show
at the National Wine Centre in Adelaide.
