Beni Knight - a documentary and aquatic photographer from New Zealand, now based in Melbourne Australia. Work is inspired by humanity and the environment, focusing on social justice and human rights issues using still photography, story telling and multimedia to get the message across.

 Giving a voice to those that need it most is the driving force behind this work, raising awareness towards issues that are less considered.

While at home on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria Australia, Beni is taking time to explore the possibilities of underwater bridal and performance photography. The ocean, and the flow and emotion it creates, is the driving force behind this work.

Work has been published by The Guardian and Deutsche Welle.
