The Human Body by Mona Kuhn

Photographer Mona Kuhn is best known for her large-scale photographs of nudes. Her work redefines the ways of looking at the body. Her pictures often depict classical themes with a light and insightful touch. Kuhn’s approach to her photography is unusual that she develops close relationships with her subjects, resulting in images of remarkable naturalness and intimacy. Her subjects are naked but they are comfortable in their own skin.

As Kuhn said, “I always feel that people are dressed in their own skin.” For her, the nude is like “an art-historical costume you can’t get away from. And if a nude is a costume, then naked would be a uniform.” Focusing her lens on different subjects including her friends and family, Kuhn’s photographs are markedly egalitarian – meaning that every one of them is equal in every aspect.
