Hardwicke Knight Prints

Hardwicke Knight, born in Stoke Newington, London in 1911, was a photographer, historian and collector who emigrated to New Zealand in 1957 to take up a medical photography position in Dunedin, New Zealand.

An eccentric polymath, Knight was well known for his striking appearance, his ramshackle Broad Bay cottage crammed with his collections and his self-proclaimed exploits, most notably his claim to have found timbers on Mount Ararat that might have been Noah’s Ark.
