Info



Born in Namibia, Kyle Weeks (b. 1992) is an interdisciplinary photographer based between Amsterdam and Cape Town. Since graduating with a BA in Photography from the Stellenbosch Academy in 2013, Weeks has experienced an explosive professional career as an artist, culminating in an assemblage of personal projects, publications, exhibitions, and editorial commissions. While his experience is vast, the throughline of Weeks’ work remains steady, best described as an infallible dedication to subverting photography’s normative standards and the colonial gaze.

This subversive methodology was established and solidified through Week’s earliest work, particularly in the series Ovahimba Youth Self-Portraits , a project that places the power of picture-taking back into the hands of historically fetishized subjects —both literally and figuratively. Since compiling the Ovahimba portraits between 2012 and 2014, Weeks has published a photobook of the seminal series.
