Shot by Kern.

Richard Kern cuts the crotch out of transparent thongs and puts them on 18-year-old girls. He makes use of soap suds, patent leather and empty fields. He has made films with titles like 'Death Valley 69' and 'Detachable Penis'. No, Richard Kern is not a paedophile - he is a world famous underground photographer. While his work can appear tasteless and extreme, it is supported by a raw artistic quality. The girls look comfortable, the shots appear natural. The proof that he is not just in it for the nudity is exemplified by his fully-clothed photograph of the wonderful Eva Green, despite her tendency to whip off her bra for films...

Vice magazine's is currently making a series of videos about Kern called 'Shot By Kern: Europe'. The first episode from London is now available to watch here. He is surprisingly charming!
