Journey

Autoportrait.jpg

From dance to photography

At 40 years old, after a career as a professional dancer at Merce Cunningham Studio in New York among othersself -taught passionate about photography, I never leave my camera.
After some portraits made on a film festival, I got a contract with Gamma, then I integrate several movies as a set photographer.
 

The experimental years 

During years of photography for press and cinema, my artistic writing asserted itself. To create my portraits, I applied what I learned on the sets like master a backlight or create a chiaroscuro. My aesthetic universe took shape in baroque construction inspiration and contrasting lighting, as in 17th century’s painting.

 

From privacy to community  

With Take care of yourself by Sophie Calle, I am comforted in what becomes my form of expression: tell a personal story to an anonymous audience.

INFORMATIONS

Art book in progress
 

"Anne Kuhn is a photographer.

She could have expressed herself differently, used other ways to purge her soul, other valves to keep reason. Literature, painting for example. How do you become a photographer? In the name of what urgency do we decide to sacrifice the other possibilities of telling people, most often women? 

Yet she wonders: who would want one of her picture in a living room? “It’s only a click on a camera”. A click, yes, but with forty years of doubts, questions, triumphs, false leads and encounters before. Her photos are sums, accumulations in mille-feuilles. They have long memories."
