Josh Kern is a photography student based in Dortmund, Germany. Despite being very young, he knows perfectly what he does and what he talks about because he has a gift: that of being able to communicate his emotions through images, with intimate shots and warm tones.
Fuck Me is the title of his photobook, created as if it were a real diary, with mixed texts and memories of moments of everyday life that are imprinted in the memory. Josh knows how to capture fragility by showing it naturally, without being cloying and managing to do so in a society that classifies emotion as a sign of weakness: this makes his work even more powerful.
On his site we can find the following incipit that precedes the video that you find below:
“Fuck me, love me, misunderstand me. You have the right to do anything you want with my words. In the end, it does not even matter why I will do it anyway. The only thing that has remained under my control is to remain true to myself and put it out there for you”.
In the gallery below you will find some shots that belong to “Fuck Me” and others on his Instagram profile, which has more than twenty-eight thousand followers.
