Mona Kuhn: Works Summary

Mona Kuhn: Works by Mona Kuhn

Mona Kuhn: Works is the first retrospective by one of the most respected and widely exhibited contemporary art photographers of today. Throughout a career spanning more than twenty years, Kuhn's underlying theme involves humanity's longing for spiritual interconnectivity. She is renowned for developing close relationships with her subjects, resulting in images of remarkable intimacy. Kuhn employs a range of playful visual strategies that reveal glimpses into the psyche as it is expressed through the human form, ultimately reinterpreting the nude in the canon of contemporary art.

This new volume features images from throughout Kuhn's career, including previously unseen work, and will introduce her distinct aesthetic to a wide, popular audience. Accompanied by insightful texts by Rebecca Morse, Chris Littlewood, Darius Himes and Simon Baker and an interview with Elizabeth Avedon, the reader is provided with insights into Kuhn's creative process and the ways in which she works with her subjects and settings, and achieves the visual signature of her imagery.

Mona Kuhn: Works is an essential volume for anyone with an interest in the human form in contemporary art.

With 155 illustrations in colour
