For the inaugural Book Club live event, Brazilian artist Mona Kuhn will be in conversation with Andrew Sanigar, Commissioning Editor at Thames & Hudson. They will be discussing the artist’s oeuvre and her newest book 'Mona Kuhn: Works’, published in March by Thames & Hudson.
LA-based Mona Kuhn is acclaimed for her contemporary depictions of the human form and essence. The underlying theme of her work is a reflection on humanity's longing for spiritual connection and solidarity. As she solidified her photographic style, Kuhn created a unique approach to the nude by developing friendships with her subjects, and employing a range of playful visual strategies that use natural light and minimalist settings to evoke a sublime sense of comfort between the human figure and its environment.
