About me.

Markel Knight BA (Hons) Birmingham, UK based Documentary photographer. Most of my works take part within the UK, and for most of my photographic expeditions I document the reminiscences of locations, and creating unusual scenarios.

Ongoing projects include; Destitute Residences, Disused Industries, and With Urban Explorers. These projects started to mature after a period, which has given them the style that they have now. But I’m still in the process of developing and evolving the style of my photographic practice.

My most recent project has been documenting the locations of the homeless in Birmingham in a way that wouldn't exploit them and in hope that the images could eventually be used to raise awareness towards them. (Collaboration with The Big Issue).
