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.

Richard Kern's photographs are a peek into a world of mystery and eroticism.
