Description by OLDIES.com:

Looker explores the world of voyeurism - to observe another, while unnoticed - through the lens of photographer Richard Kern. Through a series of carefully constructed vignettes, Kern's models proceed through their daily private lives, seemingly unaware of the camera. Or, are they unwittingly playing into the obvious cinematic intrigue? The balance of control present in each colorful frame is a powerful and sensual statement. Looker blurs the line between public and private.

Richard Kern's Looker is thought-provoking in its gentle nature, pastoral tones, and caring reflection of private innocence - but it is also refreshing and stunningly erotic, quietly exuberant in its portrayal of intimacy and abandon.

Product Description:

If the model is the exhibitionist, then I am the voyeur.?Richard Kern

Richard Kern is a post-modernist punk photographer who has worked in New York city rock music and ?No Wave” art circles since the 1970s. In Looker, through a series of carefully constructed vignettes, Kern’s models proceed through their daily private lives, seemingly unaware of the camera. Or are they wittingly playing into the obvious cinematic intrigue? The balance of control present in each frame is a powerful and sensual statement.

Looker is thought-provoking in its gentle nature, pastoral tones, and caring reflection of private innocence?but it is also freshly and stunningly erotic, silently exuberant in its portrayal of intimacy and abandon. Richard Kern’s photographs are a peek into a world of mystery and eroticism.
