    DescriptionRichard Kern is renowned for his underground films, and for his pithy remark "If the model is the exhibitionist then I am the voyeur." "The New York Times" has called his pornography-influenced images "uncommonly visceral instances of the so-called male gaze." Some folks just call them porn: his publication credits include the magazines "Barely Legal, Finally Legal, Tight, Candy Girls" and "Juggs." Kern was born in North Carolina in 1954, and has lived and worked in New York City for some 30 years. In the 80s, he produced a series of short films since recognized as the central works of the movement that has come to be called the Cinema of Transgression. In the 90s he moved back to still photography while occasionally directing music videos for performers like Sonic Youth and Marilyn Manson. He has shown his work around the world at venues including the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, the London Institute of Contemporary Art and New York's Feature, Inc. This is his tenth monograph, following titles including "Kern Noir, New York Girls" and "Model Release." It is the first to focus exclusively on his digital work.

    Description for reader
    Molto conosciuto per la sua produzione cinematografica underground, Richard Kern è stato definito come un fotografo-ritrattista appartenente a una cultura trasgressiva per più di vent'anni. I suoi scatti ritraggono giovani donne in conflitto con la loro sensualità nascosta o evidente; la sua dichiarazione "se la modella è esibizionista io sono il voyeur", è diventata famosa. In seguito alla monografia del 1997 e a Kern Noir (2002), la terza pubblicazione, incentrata sul suo lavoro recente, "Digital Kern", costituito esclusivamente da scatti digitali.
