Robert Salisbury Knight is a mid-career artist.

After graduating university, Knight set out on a self-funded, 5 year journey around the world, outfitted with a camera, journal and few necessities. During this substantial nomadic odyssey, Knight was immersed in exploration whilst developing new pathways of seeing. A formative time of study, a deep commitment to process, and a lasting desire for creating was cultivated.  

Knight’s photography first appeared in galleries in 1999 and for the past 20 years has maintained a gallery in Carmel, California, showcasing solo exhibits on a continuing basis.

The recipient of multiple awards in the world's most prestigious exhibitions including “Photographer of the Year," his photographic art has since been displayed in the finest museums internationally.

Six self-published oversized portfolio-set coffee table books have been created: "The American Landscape" (2003), "Seascapes" (2004), "Sage Wisdom" (2007), and "Wildlight" (2012), interweave both photographs and writings by the artist. Two additional prints sets "Spiritus" (2021), a collection of works from Asia, and "Antarctica" (2021) have just been released.

The artist's interests span a range of subject matter and a variety of process and medium for creating work. His artwork has been described as "elemental, dreamlike, meditative, transcendental". Knight has a self-described “passion for honoring the natural world and commitment to exploring a common light that we share".

In January of 2022, Knight is returning to Antarctica for a seventh expedition, where he will be filming a television pilot he is producing. With ongoing projects on the near horizon it is clear the inspiration and work is thriving. Knight's art is firmly established in the art aficionado community and his work is widely collected worldwide.

Knight is also proud over the past 20 years to be actively involved in the community. He has donated over 80 photographs to Stanford Children's Hospital on an ongoing basis, providing a beautiful respite to families throughout numerous facilities.  In addition, he has donated artwork to raise money for the children of Boys and Girls Clubs of Monterey and Max's Paws Foundation, which fund surgeries for family pets in need.

An Aviator for 25 years with a passion for flight, Knight pilots both paragliders and planes. A daily yoga practitioner, Robert hopes one day to reach his toes.

He makes his home with his family on the central coast of California.
