Please join us on Wednesday 25 October at 1pm UK time for TenderChats, our ongoing series of live conversations. We invite Kyle Weeks to discuss his recently self-published photobook Good News.
Over the past six years Kyle Weeks to Ghana intermittently, staging portrait sessions with a number of locals. Alongside landscapes and still-lifes, the portraits he shot – spilling between city streets and domestic interiors – put youth at the forefront. Posing like models, these young men and women defy expectations, blurring the lines between conventions of masculinity and femininity, and reflecting the significance of style as a marker of selfhood in the contemporary African city.
TenderChats is an ongoing series of 30-minute musings on the magic and permanence of printed matter. A twice-monthly series of live conversations will be hosted by writer and publisher Dal Chodha on Instagram TV @tenderbooks.
