This features pretty, supposedly random girls in varying states of undress. It feels slightly staged. You'll flick through it once and probably never give it another thought.

i love shooting unposed shots, or at least ones that look unposed. I aslo like to try to capture some of the model's innocence and personality, this book is littered with images of both. Lots of lovely natural shots of beautiful women relaxed and apparently unaware of the csmera

Very nice book, natural, not intrusive and a great intro about the accident and the author helping the girl of the road who initially spurned his photographic focus on her.

Not hot 20 Aug. 2014
By ............Shooter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Richard Kern's Looker should be called a non-erotic version of Roy Stuarts Glympstorys, very soft core but disturbing in its implied content. The cover promised something the book didn't deliver. This is less about nice nudes and more about the kink of upskirt type photography but looked staged and not sexy. Minimal nudity but nothing redeeming about that in this context. Several pictures posted in the listing are not in the book but may be by the same artist, this is confusing and doesn't help. Only buy this if you are interested in looking at pictures that would be interesting to the sort of sad older man your parents warned you about.

Not a Voyeur 22 Aug. 2008
By Timothy Haugh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
There's a little bit of the voyeur in all of us. It seems like Richard Kern is in a good position to take advantage of this and provide an excellent collection of photographs. Unfortunately, this book is a bit of a disappointment.

Part of the disappointment comes from the simple fact that a professional photographer can't be a true voyeur; or, at least, he can't publish those photographs in a book. Geoff Nicholson hints at this a bit it his opening essay. However, Mr. Nicholson also sets up expectations in his essay about furtively trying to take photographs on the street that are not realized in the photos that follow.

That is not to say that there aren't some good photographs in this book. Early photos in a sequence, particularly the photos taken outdoors of a single subject are often quite compelling. They truly seem to capture a person unawares; however, as the sequences go on, and the models get into states of further undress, the pictures are obviously staged, which destroys the voyeuristic quality.

In some ways, Mr Kern is trying to capture something next to impossible to capture well. Still, he manages, occasionally, to capture more than I expected. If his focus would be on what he achieved in the earlier part of the photo sequences here, I think he would have been more successful.

the one to buy! 3 Oct. 2011
By michael - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you are a fan of Richard Kern's work, especially some of the shoots he's done on the VBS.TV "Shot By Kern" online episodes then you will love this book. A lot of the work featured in this book is of that style, very subtle in its eroticism, very quietly captivating images. The introduction is a very well written short story of sorts about the "modern voyeur" that is very well written and entertaining on a level separate from the images themselves.
All in all if you buy one of Kern's books, I'd say to get this one.

Very Well Done 31 Oct. 2009
By Alan Evatt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This Is A Tastefully Done Look Into Voyeurism Without Any Creepy Thrown In. These Are Images Often Thougt About, But Not Captured By Photography. Bravo !
