Mona Kuhn’s (German, b. Brazil, 1969) photographs of nudes aim to show the human body in its most natural state. Stripping away the distraction of material adornment, her subjects become timeless and free from cultural and/or generational stereotypes. A sense of comfort permeates each photograph; the subjects feel safe and at ease, allowing a genuine conveyance of emotion. She begins each series with a specific color palette in mind, followed by an emotion. Then she chooses a location, and lastly her subjects. Working intimately with a group of friends, she considers each photograph a collaboration.
