Mona Kuhn

Under the Surface

Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)


The photographer Mona Kuhn has German ancestors but was born in Brazil. She had her photographic debut with her monograph "Photographs", that appeared 2004 by Steidl Verlag.

In her nude portraits she pursues an unusual approach: First she builds strong relationships to her models before they are photographed. This results in natural, intimate pictures of nude people who feel comfortable in their own skin. For Kuhn it is always important to abstract the images in order "not to tell the whole story."

In this interview Kuhn reports on her approach to photography and how she came to her latest project "Private".
