Richard Kern's 'Hello' photographs - young women in intimate moments. Exhibition at Kaune, Sudendorf, Cologne

When an artist makes videos for bands like Sonic Youth and Marilyn Manson, but still mainly concentrates on their photography work, one might be quick to question why?! His current ‘Hello’ exhibition provides an equally as quick answer: Richard Kern’s images are full of allure and also provide an invitation to his privileged world.

Privileged because he is allowed to accompany young women to places where others would only experience a closed door. He usually photographs his models in the nude, twisted, intimate – yet without making their bodies come across as directly erotic. His stark, clear approach to photography often results in bizarre and intimate portraits.

Richard Kern never lost his boyish curiosity and reveals a series full of apparent, girly secrets. He has spent more than the last twenty years exploring and capturing the complex and often dark aspects of human nature. He depicts highly private and often embarrassing moments.

The artist was born in 1954, North Carolina, USA. He lives and works in New York. His provocative and often nude photographs can be viewed at the Kaune, Sudendorf Gallery, Cologne until 31 July 2010.
