Photographs by Richard Kern.
The spectacle of Richard Kern's legendary filmmaking and photography incites many reactions, but rarely is indifference among them. His imagery's characteristic blitzkrieg of subversive eroticism, porno kitsch, punk sensibility and aggressive femininity has won admirers of the so-called grunge aesthetic. This book has images of Kern's recent work, which stands at the intersection of fashion, sex and politics. The critical text by Paparoni explores the relationship between some of Kern's subjects and famous images from pre-war art history.
