Mona Kuhn has managed the capture the essence of fleeting memories on camera. She explores the idea of self-discovery and personal journeys through a series of enigmatic images that juxtapose nature with nudity, surrealism with realism. The result is mesmerizing. Mona Kuhn somehow captures the soul of the moment, which is incredibly powerful visually and emotionally.

Often pushing "the nude figure to abstraction, creating new context and meaning," writes Beautiful Decay, Mona Kuhn strives to bring a new perspective to people's worlds. She shares, "I realized I ought to photograph the human in us, without shame, without regret, free and timeless." In both of her Private and Acido Dorado series, people will connect with the subject deeply -- much of that stemming from the fact that the identity is mutable.
