Mona Kuhn (Brazil/USA)
It is no easy task to choose a favorite body of work by the multi-faceted Mona Kuhn, but her Bordeaux Series (2011), shown first at Flowers Gallery's London space at the end of 2011, then at their New York gallery in February, 2012, has an air of calm maturity and confident precision that suggests that the Brazil-born photographer is only getting better and better at her craft. Kuhn's Native series from 2009 was recently exhibited at Brancolini Grimaldi, Florence and will be on view from June to August at Galeria Pilar Serra, Madrid. She also shot the Bottega Veneta 2012 Resort Campaign and will participate in Moskau House of Photography's TraummĂ¤nner Ausstellung, Fashion and Style Festival in 2013.
