Product description

Richard Kern likes real women: unpretentious, unadorned, and definitely undressed. Those who love Kern know each book is an invitation to join him in his privileged world where natural young women share their most intimate moments. Richard has never lost his boyish curiosity with girls and their secrets, so instead of posing them in sterile sets he follows them through the house - or rather his New York apartment - from backyard to kitchen to bathroom to bedroom, capturing every sexy and embarrassing moment. "Action" is his most revealing book yet. For 280 pages, we careen through the life of Kern, accompanied by dozens of energetic, fun-loving, clothes-dropping exhibitionists. "Young women want to show the world they're not like their man-hating women's lib mothers," a Kern model once told me, and these girls certainly get the point across. To further assist the young ladies in their rebellion, the book includes an hour-long DVD of original Kern film with an exclusive musical score by Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth. 'Way to stick it to the Mom, ladies! And thank you, Richard, you lucky dog.' - Dian Hanson

Author information

Richard Kern was born in North Carolina in 1954 and has lived and worked in New York City since 1979. In the '80s, he produced a series of short films that now are recognized as the central works of the movement known as the Cinema of Transgression. In the '90s he switched to still photography full time and occasionally directed music videos for bands including Sonic Youth and Marilyn Manson. Kern has published nine books and is a regular contributor to a variety of international publications. Dian Hanson is a twenty-five-year veteran of men's magazine publishing. She began her career at Puritan magazine in 1976 and went on to edit a variety of titles, including Partner, Oui, Hooker, Outlaw Biker, and Juggs magazines. In 1987 she took over the '60s title Leg Show and transformed it into the world's best-selling fetish publication. She is also the author of TASCHEN's Terryworld, Tom of Finland: The Comic Collection, and History of Men's Magazines six-volume set.

""There's something for everyone in Richard Kern's latest publication, Action, in the sense that there's something to offend pretty much everyone."" British Journal of Photography, London
