Richard Kern ain’t your typical photographer. He won’t shout directions like, “C’mon baby. Yeah, that’s it,” at the model. He strives to capture innocence by taking uncontrived candids of young girls with minimal makeup. “I shoot just anywhere where it’s possible for a girl to not be wearing clothes but not posing, the posing just kills it,” says Kern.

Richard Kern has been published in magazines like Purple, V Magazine, Vice, and Italian GQ; his work has been shown at museums such as the MOMA and The Whitney Museum. Take a voyeuristic peep into the gallery for more of Richard Kern’s photos.
