    Mona Kuhn: Private, Steidl, 2014, pl. 9

  • Catalogue Essay

    Mona Kuhn’s alluring image was taken at sunset at a friend’s house that overlooks the vast desert valley in Palm Desert, California. “I no longer see a body,” Kuhn explains, “instead I am drawn to the layers of desert light. Reflections that merge and fade, yet seem to be there all at once, no longer knowing whether this seeing lasted a second or more.” For her series Private, Kuhn travelled through the Mojave and Arizona regions over a two-year period to explore the desert, its many facets and our vulnerability in that environment.
