We're kicking off NYC Fashion Week with a poetic new Photo Book from Mona Kuhn

Featured image is reproduced from Mona Kuhn: She Disappeared in Complete Silence, the sophisticated Fashion Week favorite releasing this week from Steidl. Enigmatic and poetic, the book "forces the gaze to wander from one image to another, to imagine a story so that we may comprehend them," Salvador Nadales writes. "The work’s personal universe gives rise to situations in which the body in all its integrity, the raw landscape, and the most essential abstraction appear within complete silence, and convey to us absolute truths. But this truth flirts with the imagination and asks the viewer to supply the narrative. We could characterize this as a space of germination where enigmatic signs take seed and the harmonic hybridization of the elements give rise to an evocative tale. The essence of Mona Kuhn’s work reveals her concerns as an artist working in the transcendental dimension, the atemporal plane, and from a knowledge of human nature and how people relate to themselves, to others, and to the outside world. She achieves all this in a way that is consistent with her approach to photography, which, more than telling stories, allows you to imagine them."
