Richard Kern Quotes.
The first time I heard of suicidegirls was when a model from there contacted me to see if I wanted to do a shoot. I can’t remember what happened with that but we didn’t end up doing it.
Then I became aware of the site as the traffic for it became higher. The most recent contact was this girl Lily. She wanted me to shoot her for the site and she actually showed up. There a lot of people who contact me to do a shoot for a website then you never hear from them.
What bothers people more than anything is that I’m an old guy taking photos of them. But maybe if you look at the photos, 20, 30 years later, it’s not going to matter who took the photos. I mean, they would just be there. People will hopefully get over that.
Not for models. SuicideGirls is a mystery to me because I thought only women ran the site.
A lot of the point mags are going out of business. They dropped the pay tremendously and it’s all because of the internet. I used to go out once a month to LA and shoot for one week. I’d make a ton of money then come back to New York and do whatever I wanted.
