Lives & Works in Amsterdam, Netherlands
Kyle Weeks is an interdisciplinary photographer whose work explores questions of cultural transformation, social identity, and self expression. Subverting photography’s normative conventions by upending the historical power dynamics of picture-taking, and honouring the authenticity of his subjects, represent key aspects of his practice.
Since graduating with a BA in Photography in 2013, Weeks has pursued multiple personal projects which have culminated in a range of publications and exhibitions, alongside various commissions and editorial assignments. A consistent visual language characterised by a unique brand of portraiture unites and informs Weeks’ work in both contexts. A recipient of the Magnum Prize in 2016, and named amongst The British Journal of Photography’s Ones to Watch in 2019, Weeks has also exhibited at art fairs internationally, from Photo London and Unseen Amsterdam to 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair. His images have appeared in a range of leading publications, including i-D, Dazed, M le Monde, Self Service, Another Man, WSJ, and Time Magazine.
Kyle Weeks will be presented by Gallery Gomis.
