About the Author

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 are now recognized as the central works of the movement known as the Cinema of Transgression. In the '90s he switched to still photography full time. Since 2000 he has primarily devoted himself to gallery shows and, beginning in 2005, to his VBS video series "Shot By Kern."

Dian Hanson produced a variety of men’s magazines from 1976 to 2001, including Juggs, Outlaw Biker and Leg Show, before becoming TASCHEN’s Sexy Book editor. Her 60+ books for TASCHEN include The Art of Pin-up and Psychedelic Sex. She lives in Los Angeles.

Richard Kern is an excellent photographer, and he understands what delights his audience. However, my one complaint regarding this book -- and it is dedicated more to the customer who owns all of his monographs to date -- is that I don't feel he continues to push the edge in terms of his subject material.

Perhaps next time.

I like Kern, so this is sort of a ringer review. The book is nicely bound. It is a good size as well. I like the commentary that prefaces some of the sections. If you aren't familiar with Kern's work, then google him before you spend the money.

I chose this book based on a couple of reviews. One said that if one liked Richard Kern's previous books then one would like this one. Nothing could be further from the truth. I have two of Richard Kern's previous books and like them very much, so I was confident about ordering this one sight unseen. It is nothing like his previous books. Shot by Kern was pictorially disappointing and the subject material was not appealing. Many of the women were not really attractive, at least to me. I found the book to be boring, and I certainly did not wish to ever look at it again. His previous books were visually stimulating, but certainly not Shot by Kern.
