Mona Kuhn’s photographs of groups of beautiful naturists lounging around in apparent lazy luxury have sparked international interest.

She was a finalist in the BMW-Paris Photo 1st prize for Photography, and her luscious large format color prints are in demand from collectors worldwide. An attractively printed book including both color and black-and-white work is available, as well.

I had the opportunity to talk with her about her work, her choice of subjects, selective focus, color vs. black-and-white, and the power of photography to immortalize people and freeze time.You can hear what she has to say in this 13-minute audio interview for Lens Culture.
