Mona Kuhn - Native
new in plastic out of print!
This work started as a personal journey. Metaphorically, I was thinking of a bird that flies back into the forest, searching for its childhood nest. The images here are a creation of my abstracted wishes and dreams.As I was searching, instead of home, I found an empty past, just traces of it.Yet, my journey was filled with new friendships and discoveries made along the way,"writes Los Angeles-based photographer Mona Kuhn about her journey back to her native Brazil after 20 years.Her third photobook, Native unfolds slowly, as a dreamy narration of this adult exploration of her childhood home.Photographed in the rainforest and surrounding city area, the images are suffused with a deep green,gold and pink palette. Native is accompanied by an essay from critic Shelley Rice.
Mona Kuhn was born in Brazil in 1969,is of German descent and now lives in Los Angeles.She received her BA from Ohio State Universitybefore studying at the San Francisco Art Institute in 1996and at the Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles in 1999.
