The Brazilian-born artist Mona Kuhn is best known for her dreamlike, large format photographs of the human body. With her ability to develop close relationships with those she photographs, she manages to create images where the models are nude, yet comfortable and relaxed. Kuhn is currently residing in the United States, and also makes assignments for commercial players. She has published several books and has an impressive exhibition business in galleries and museums worldwide.

(Norsk tekst:) Den brasilianskfødte kunstneren Mona Kuhn er mest kjent for sine drømmeliknende fotografier av menneskekroppen i stort format. Med hennes evne til å utvikle nære relasjoner til de hun fotograferer, klarer hun å skape bilder der modellene er nakne, men likevel komfortable og avslappede. Kuhn er i dag bosatt i USA, og gjør også oppdrag for kommersielle aktører. Hun har gitt ut flere bøker og har en imponerende utstillingsvirksomhet i gallerier og museer verden over.
