Kyle Archie Knight (AU/WIRADJURI)


Born 1999, Naarm (Melbourne), Australia
Lives and works Naarm (Melbourne), Australia

Kyle Archie Knight is a Wiradjuri queer photographic artist. His series Cruising for a Bruising (2022-ongoing) is a camp love letter to the Australian Suburbs. Growing up queer in outer-metropolitan Naarm (Melbourne), Knight found themselves drawn to explore the streets of their family neighbourhood. Their search for moments that capture the essence of suburbia results in a celebration of the surreal and the mundane, the humorous and the humdrum. Knight reconnects with past memories of estrangement, finding humour and delight in what was once alienating and suffocating.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
