Richard Kern is the quintessential New York photographer: he's high speed and high contrast. Son of a journalist, he was born in North Carolina, works around the world and lives in his beloved New York. Known for his underground films and bold photographs of naked girls, Kern unselfconsciously invents mischievous erotic stories and shoots them in simple domestic settings. As he once said, "if the model is an exhibitionist then I am a voyeur". In this book, Kern presents a collection of black and white photographs taken since the beginning of his career. In addition to his "girls", this volume also includes a few male nudes and landscapes.
