Kyle Weeks

Originally from Namibia, Kyle Weeks attended the Stellenbosch Academy, where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in photography in 2013. While living in Cape Town, he co-founded Cape Collective Assist, a cooperative that facilities a range of development programs for aspiring photographers in the city.

Weeks now lives and works between Europe and Africa. Weeks’ work is characterized by his ability to overturn aesthetic stereotypes. By prioritizing the lived experiences of a diverse group of individuals, he maintains his subjects’agency while fulfilling his role as a creative photographer. This method ringstrue in his personal practice, where Weeks challenges the traditional relationship between subjects and documentary image-makers, touching on the pervasive nature of colonial dynamics.

His most recent series, Palm Wine Collectors, presents the Makalani palm harvesters of northern Namibia’s Kunene Region, offering a subversive alternative to voyeuristic documentary stylings.

Between 2012 and 2014, Weeks also produced the portrait series Ovahimba Youth Self-Portraits, a body of work that acts as a visual commentary on the longstanding colonial photographic methods used to depict Africans. These personal pursuits seamlesslyinfluence Weeks’ fashion and culture commissions, which are celebrated for their unflinching departure from mainstream, whitewashed fashion advertising by featuring unbothered presentations of diverse faces and personalities.
