Kyle Archie Knight is a Wiradjuri queer photographic artist. He graduated from RMIT University with a Bachelor of Arts (Photography) (Honours) Honours First Class. Knight has a keen interest in the mundane and humdrum suburbia of Naarm/Melbourne. From this fascination, he produced a long-form project, ‘Cruising for a Bruising’ and with this project was a finalist (with High Commendation) in the Ballarat International Foto Biennale (BIFB) 2022 GradFoto exhibition. He has since been included in the 2023 Ballarat International Foto Biennale as a core program artist – as part of the BIFB Fire Country initiative – with images from the series ‘Cruising for a Bruising’ on exhibition along with copies of his debut photobook of the same name, published by M.33 Melbourne. Alongside his documentary practice, Kyle Archie Knight is becoming sought after for his work as an editorial and commercial photographer, particularly within the First Nations and fashion arenas.
