This photo is an outtake from a series included in Kern’s now-infamous publication New York Girls (1995), a book that documents the city’s burgeoning scene of tattooed, pierced, and S&M-influenced girls—all nude, of course. Kern is well-known for blurring sexy with downright creepy; however, the model in this print seems demure, charming the viewer with her winsome smile and off-kilter breasts. Although the model may appear kittenish, nothing in Kern’s work is completely wholesome; this photograph was made in conjunction with a shoot for the porno mag Barely Legal.
