Barn Bluff winter dawn Grant Dixon
Grant Dixon is a photographer whose work encompasses landscapes, abstract patterns in nature, wildlife, travel and adventure subjects. He lives in Tasmania and ventures frequently into the wild country of Australia's island state. While he knows the Tasmanian backcountry intimately, Grant has also travelled extensively, visiting parts of all seven continents. He is particularly attracted to cool climate regions and mountain landscapes, with many images captured while participating in high latitude or high altitude expeditions.
 
Images from Grant's travels have been widely published and continue the Tasmanian tradition of photography activating awareness of the environment. He co-publishes a calendar, Wild Tasmania with fellow artist Rob Blakers, and his illustrated articles have appeared widely in various outdoor, geographic, conservation, travel and special interest publications internationally.
 
In 1997 Grant won the "Escalade Nikon Mountain Photographic Competition", and was runner-up the following year. In 1998-99 he travelled to Antarctica under an Australian Antarctic Arts Fellowship. Grant was a finalist in the 2007 "Significant Images, Significant Places" photography prize exhibition, celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. In 2008 he won the People's Choice Award in the "Extreme Environment" photographic competition held with the Antarctic Midwinter Festival in Tasmania, and he was again a finalist in 2009. Several exhibitions have featured his images of Antarctica and Tasmania.
 
Grants images are printed on Ilford Gold Fibre Silk 315gsm paper and the prints are rated to 75-100 years.
