This is the first US solo exhibition of German photographer Mona Kuhn’s newest large-scale colour series, Acido Dorado. These photographs of nudes aim to show the human body in its most natural state, timeless and free from cultural and generational stereotypes.

A sense of comfort permeates each photograph; the subjects feel safe and at ease, allowing a genuine conveyance of emotion. She begins each series with a specific colour palette and emotion in mind, then she chooses a location, and lastly her subjects. Working intimately with a group of friends, Kuhn considers each photograph a collaboration whereby postures mirror environments and open up a dialogue about the human body’s interaction with the setting.
