The Human Body by Mona Kuhn

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.

The visual impressions of this large-sized color photographs of the photo project The Artificial Face by Thomas Rusch have an attracting and disturbing effect to the viewers. The faces of his models are masked almost beyond recognition with milky clothes and surgical gauze soaked in red. Only the eye sockets and the mouth mark human identity. In this series, Rusch melted together the difference between skin and mask, the human body and artificial texture. Moreover, he achieved this photos even without digital modification.

Rusch’s masks created with make up and transparent materials isolated the face’s features. The face, instead of simply being a part of the body, reveals itself as a cultural concept. Like in real life, his masks reveal by covering and they mask by revealing themselves.
