About Mona Kuhn
Kuhn (1969, Sāo Paulo) is one of the most respected contemporary photographers. She is well known for her large-scale photographs of the human form and essence. An underlying current in Kuhn’s work is her reflection on our longing for spiritual connection and solidarity. Kuhn is considered a leading artist in the world of figurative discourse.
Kuhn created a notable approach to the nude by developing friendships with her subjects. She employs a range of playful visual strategies. She also uses natural light and minimalist settings. Thus, she evokes a sense of comfort. As a result, she creates connections between the human figure and its environment. In addition, her work is natural, restful, and a reinterpretation of the nude.
