Contact High is a new collection of works by photographer Richard Kern. Inspired by a chance encounter with a young model who reminded him of the girls of his pot-smoking days, the collection is imbibed with youthful hedonism, nostalgia and innocence. Kern says of the premise for the photographs, “I spent a lot of time with my friends smoking pot, listening to music, running around in the woods and sometimes swimming naked. Back then, when I was around a naked girl, weed was either about to be smoked or had been smoked.”
Richard Kern, Contact High (ed. Jessie Pearson) will be available in paperback from the 10th October 2013, RRP £14.99, 96 pp.
