Photographer Richard Kern studies bondage in a variety of configurations for this Vice spread. 'Richard Kern, photographer and filmmaker remains, first and foremost, a portraitist.

With his dry, matter of fact approach, he underlines the absurdity of truth and objectivity in photography while playing with our reliance upon taxonomies around sexual representation.'

Her favorite artists include Egon Schiele, Antonio Lopez, Isao Yajima, and Rei Kawakubo.
