Kirra Cheers (b. 1987) is a photo-based artist whose work explores themes of connection and sexuality within an urban dating culture. Originally from Australia, Kirra now lives and works in New York City. Since the viral success of her breakthrough project, Tinderella, Kirra was named ‘Young Creative Australian of the Year’ in the field of photography by Lost at E minor and has spoken on numerous occasions about dating in a digital world.
On the evening of October 13th, 2014, my 27th birthday, I was gifted a list from an acquaintance I will refer to as ‘K’ (the Keeper). The list chronicled his sexual history, named and numbered in consecutive order. I spent a year tracking down the people behind the names, interviewing and photographing them in the hope of creating a picture of K as he would be seen through the eyes of his former lovers.
While reading ‘The List,’ consider your own:
How many people have you had sex with?
What would they say about you?
What would your life look like as seen through the eyes of your former lovers?
