Kieran Butler (b. 1992, Nowra, NSW, Australia) is an emerging photographic artist who works across photography, installation, costume and set design, and performance. Currently their research looks at applying transgender studies as a methodology for examining non-binary models of contemporary photographic practice, gender identity, and where these two histories might speak to one another. Kieran currently lives and works in Sydney, Australia.

Kieran has recently exhibited works at BLINDSIDE (Melb, Vic) for their first solo exhibition Rainbow Bois and Magical Gurls, and will be exhibiting works for their second solo exhibition Queen Size at ANCA (Dickson, ACT) in September.
