Kern Noir (Naked?)

Kern Noir (Naked?) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the most transgressive of American photographers, Richard Kern makes brazen portraits of enticing nude women. But if his photographs easily cross over into the world of pornography, they are distinguished from prosaic porn by their beauty and, more importantly, their treatment of voyeurism as a theme.

Synopsis:

As Kern once said, "The best part of anything is watching," and through his photographs, he not only seduces the viewer into looking but forces a subsequent recognition of his or her own voyeurism. This publication presents a new series of black and white photographs.

Synopsis:

Richard Kern is the quintessential New York photographer: 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. Here, Kern presents a collection of black and white photographs spanning his career.
