Originally from Namibia, Kyle Weeks (b. 1992) attended the Stellenbosch Academy, where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in photography in 2013. 

Weeks was the winner of the 2016 Magnum Photography Award and had work included in the 2017 I.P.F. Photo Prize exhibition in London. Palm Wine Collectors was featured in Red Hook Labs’ exhibition New African Photography II in NYC, a group exhibition dedicated to work by young image makers in present-day Africa. Ovahimba Youth Self Portraits was exhibited in two solo shows in 2014 – one at MOP6 and the other at Joburg Art Fair – and in 2016 Weeks debuted new work for his solo exhibition at the National Art Gallery of Namibia. In 2014, he was a nominee for the Mack First Book Award. Weeks’ work has also appeared in exhibitions at MoCADA in NYC, and has been shown at a number of photography fairs, including Unseen Amsterdam, Photo London and 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair .

In addition to exhibitions and fairs, Weeks’ photographs have been featured by a selection of publications, including Wall Street Journal Magazine, M le Monde, Time Magazine,  The New York Times, i-D and Dazed.
