JUROR | MONA KUHN
Mona Kuhn is an internationally acclaimed artist. Kuhn photographs beautiful nudes that are not simply about being naked. They are about the body being a residence of who we are as human beings. Kuhn portrays the complexities of human nature, both tempting and provoking the viewer’s imagination. Her body of work includes images from a French naturist colony and her birthplace of Brazil where she returned after a 20 year absence.
She has exhibited extensively in the United States, Europe, and South America. Steidl published her past two monographs Photographs (2004), Evidence (2007), Native (2009), as well as her most recent Bordeaux Series (2011). Her work is held in collections such as the Griffin Museum, Massachusetts; the Miami Art Museum, Florida; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the Museum of Photographic Arts, San Diego; the Sir Elton John Collection, England; and the Buhl Foundation, New York.
