Jonathan Dredge is a fine art photographer with a focus on film and alternative practices, such as wet plate and large format photography.
Growing up on the plains of Little River, he spent his childhood years playing on the riverbank, sifting through the ruins of long-gone farmhouses and connecting to the bushy landscape.
These memories have embedded themselves in his art. His work is earthy and grounded, yet imbued with a sense of spirituality and symbolism as he draws out his deeply held love for the land.
During his career, with a B.A Photography from RMIT, he has won numerous awards for his work, including most recently ‘Best Film Photograph’ at the Centre for Contemporary Photography Salon 2020.
He has exhibited throughout Geelong and Melbourne with both solo and group shows, and has curated multiple well-received group exhibitions.
Jonathan is a co-founder of The Hue and Cry Collective; an artist community and gallery in Geelong, Victoria. He lives, works and creates on Wadawurrung land with his artist wife Laura and two kids, Joa and Awen.
