Native by Mona Kuhn - a photo book on new experiences of the past in Brazil

After 20 years, Mona Kuhn returned to her birthplace in Brazil, to reinterpret her past. She travelled through the rainforest, spent time at an apartment in Sao Paulo and made new friends. She returned with a series titled ‘ Native’, a reflection of the experiences with old memories and new emotions.

Mona on her project: “The project started as a very personal journey. In terms of metaphors, I thought of a bird that flies back to the woods in search of its childhood nest. The resulting images are visuals of my abstracted wishes and imagination.”

The photographer was born in Brazil, 1969 and lives in Los Angeles. Her work has been on display in countless exhibitions in New York, Paris and Venice, including a show in Los Angles, which sadly closed at the beginning of December. Mona’s work is also held by the Schwarz Fine and Contemporary Art Collection in Berlin, the Sir Elton John Collection in England and at the Musee de la Photographie de Charleroi, Belgium.

In addition to this, Steidl Verlag have published her book on Native, with an essay by Wayne V. Anderson and text by Shelley Rice. The publication provides the opportunity of getting to know Mona Kuhn’s work between the wilderness and civilisation, for as often as one wants.
