Quil Lemons (US)

Quil Lemons is Brooklyn-based African American photographer. Lemons’ work is a representation of the community he comes from. While his subject is often blackness or black bodies, the context of his work comes from the internet, queerness, and popular culture.


The themes of his work are timeless and ambitious in scope. Subjects like masculinity, queerness, race, positivity are played out in often disruptive images that feel like pure imagination. Lemons dances the line between the fantastic and realistic, drawing influence from our current cultural climate, giving his work an eerily familiar feeling.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
