Jonathan Groeneweg was born and raised in Calgary, residing in Toronto since July 2010. Groeneweg holds a Masters of Fine Art in Documentary Media from Ryerson University and a Bachelor of Fine Arts specializing in photography from the University of Calgary. Groeneweg has taken part in solo and group exhibitions within Canada and abroad; traveled internationally on multiple photo/video projects; and developed a strong community-based arts practice via various educational, artist-in-residence, and outreach programs.

Groeneweg’s artistic practice distorts traditional relations between image, scale, indexicality, and the photographic frame by employing composite panoramic images with a focused subject matter of gardens, ruins, and urban space. Addressing historic and contemporary issues within the discourses of documentary, landscape, philosophy, photography, sustainability, and urban development, Groeneweg explores the human/nature duality as a fundamental cultural construct exposing how this dialectic manifests in the ways humanity thinks about and acts towards the world we live in.
