Mona Kuhn is a contemporary photographer making emotive portraiture that captures the universal by focusing on the very intimate and is best known for her large-scale photographs of the human form. Her approach is unusual in that she develops close relationships with her subjects, resulting in images of remarkable intimacy, and creating the effect of people naked but comfortable in their own skin. Kuhn was born in São Paulo, Brazil, in 1969, of German descent. In 1989, Kuhn moved to the US and earned her BA from The Ohio State University, before furthering her studies at the San Francisco Art Institute. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles, where she is an independent scholar at The Getty Research Institute. This is Jackson Fine Art’s fifth solo exhibition of her work. Mona Kuhn’s monographs “She Disappeared into Complete Silence” (Steidl) and “Bushes and Succulents” (Stanley/Barker) were among the most anticipated art publications of the year.
