Mona Kuhn: Works
Mona Kuhn: Works is the first retrospective of the work of one of the most respected and exhibited contemporary art photographers in the world today. In a career spanning more than twenty years, Kuhn’s underlying theme has always been humanity’s desire for spiritual connection and solidarity. She is known for developing close relationships with her subjects, resulting in images of remarkable intimacy. Her use of playful visual strategies reveals glimpses of the psyche as expressed through the human form, ultimately reinterpreting the nude in the contemporary art canon.
Presenting images from across Kuhn’s career, including previously unpublished works, this book introduces his distinct aesthetic to a broad, popular audience. Texts by Rebecca Morse, Chris Littlewood, Darius Himes, and Simon Baker, as well as an interview with Elizabeth Avedon, offer invaluable insight into Kuhn’s creative process and how she works with her subjects and settings, and achieves the visual signature of her images. Mona Kuhn: Works is an essential volume for anyone interested in the human form in contemporary art.
