His recent photographs with saturated color and stark, atmospheric lighting accentuate his pretty-but-not-perfect young nudes. Inspired, unique, and real, his approach is as daring as ever in Soft. Still sticking with the no airbrush motto, Kerns unpretentious, honest photos draw the viewer in close.Kerns longstanding relationship with the No-wave scene, which incorporated music, performance, feminist art, and the punk lifestyle, is reflected and distilled in these photographs.
