New York Girls, first released in 1995, defined a time, a place, and the raw esthetic of the artist Richard Kern.

Naked, tattooed, pierced, and casually posed in minimal sets, Kern’s models were young, but not innocent, fully complicit in the bondage, gunplay, and infamous candle insertion scenarios of his shots.

On the 20th anniversary of this best-known Kern portfolio, TASCHEN presents an updated edition with never-published outtakes from the original photo sets, as well as photos rejected as too explicit for the first book.

The photographer:
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.”

    Good common sense approach for anyone over sixty looking to improve in the area of sexual performance. Easy to read and understand.
